According to the 2003 addition of the International Building Code, structural engineers were permitted to design chevron braced steel frames to unlimited heights in Seismic Design Categories A, B, and C assuming R=3 without following seismic detailing provisions. A significant portion of the United States falls within these categories and may be vulnerable to nonconservative seismic designs. To date limited research has been focused on the seismic performance of structures in these low to moderate seismic regions.Proceedings of the sessions related to seismic engineering at Structures Congress a#39;89, pages 711-720.
