Abstract
This work presents mechanics, tests, and finite element modeling results of a proposed steel dual-core self-centering brace (SCB) and a sandwiched buckling-restrained brace (BRB) for earthquake-resistant structures. The mechanics and cyclic behavior of these two braces are first explained, followed by testing of dual-core SCBs and BRBs to evaluate their cyclic performances. Finite element modeling analysis is then performed on the specimens to further verify the capability of the computer modeling for the mechanics and hysteretic responses of specimens observed in tests.
