Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis and Component Test of Buckling Restrained Bracing Device

This report conducted the nonlinear dynamic analysis and the component test of a scaled-down buckling restrained bracing (BRB). The results of the nonlinear dynamic analysis show that the BRB device has good energy dissipation capacity. Moreover, the results of the component test show that the initial stiffness of BRB is 12.50 t/mm, the global yielding stiffness is 3.13 t/mm, and the stiffness ratio is 0.25.
