عنوان مقاله [English]
Due to disadvantages of seismic behavior in conventional braces in term of low plasticity and asymmetric hysteresis curve in tension and compression and pinching which reduces the energy dissipation rate, Buckling Restrained Braces (BRBs) have been proposed as a new generation of bracing system. This paper examines specific type of these braces with steel core and concrete sheath. The effects of core distancefrom confining concrete of these braces haven been discussed using Finite element analysis method. The results show that buckling mode and energy absorption of this system have largely depend on the distance, and 2 to 4 mm distance causes the most energy dissipation.
