The BCE fuse system has the ability to dissipate energy without loss in strength up to very large inelastic deformations. Experimental results showed that damage to the BCE fuse was very limited even at unit deformations beyond 3%, indicating that the fuse has remarkable toughness under load reversals.The most recent AISC Seismic Provision [AISC, 2005] was completed in 2005 and published in the second quarter of 2006. ... The thirteenth edition of the AISC Manual of Steel Construction [LRFD/ASD, 2005] was published in spring 2006, anbsp;...
