This publication illustrates the design of seismic-force-resisting systems (SFRS) and bracing connections for buildings with concentrically braced frames in areas of low to moderate seismicity according to the National Building Code of Canada 2015 (NBC 2015) and CSA S16-14. The example structures range from 1 to 6 storeys and feature tension-only and tension-compression bracing, chevron and X-bracing, conventional construction and limited-ductility (type LD) systems. Two design examples of brace-to-gusset connections for type LD braced frames (chevron and X-bracing) are also included.
