The goal of the project that this study is part of was to advance current Rational Seismic Design (RSD) procedures for concrete frame-braced buildings located in regions of high seismicity, by developing alternative structural systems that will meet or exceed the performance objectives of currently prescribed systems, yet reduce construction costs. This grant supported a static testing phase necessary to develop and evaluate the efficacy and cost of several alternative frame solutions. The study was designed to serve as a base from which extensive shake table testing of large-scale frame systems can be developed.
