3-D Model Development of Metal Building Systems with Hard Walls
Metal Buildings with precast concrete or masonry walls (hard walls) have been identified by analytical modeling, shake table tests, and earthquake reconnaissance as being susceptible to collapse. While the steel frames ...
Development, Testing, and Analysis of a Rotational Friction Connection for Improving the Seismic Performance of Metal Building Systems with Hard Walls
The use of metal building systems has become commonplace in today’s society. For well over two decades, the performance of metal building systems during seismic events has been the subject of intense research. It was ...
