Re: eccentric braced frames

As far as I know, prequalified connections only apply to "moment" frame connections.  You will need to slog out the numbers per Section 15 of the AISC Seismic Provisions.

Please respond to seaint
eccentric braced frames

Are there any references with prequalified connections for eccentric braced frames?  I’m looking designing an eccentric braced frame (inverted V) with a link for the brace to beam connection.  I definitely don’t want to do qualification testing… are there prequalifed connections for this condition?
