  7. Abstract:
  8. A new eccentrically braced system is discussed. In this system which Named “eccentrically braced frame with vertical link”, the braces is connected to vertical link, instead of floor beam. The vertical link acts as a ductile energy-dissipating element, allowing the rest of the construction such as floor beams, braces and columns remain in the elastic range. In this paper, a parametric study is performed on sample frames with push-over analysis. In these analysis, the efficacy of the variation of link length, link area and the position of the link beam, is studied. The results showed that, the most important effective parameters in improvement of inelastic behavior of frame is decreasing of link length. Also it is found that EBF with vertical shear link has a greater ductility and behavior factor than customary EBF.
