One for the Engineers – Buckling Restraint Design Information 

23 May 2023

Do you design mass timber projects? See this month’s Structure Magazine for an informative article with 3 case studies on using CoreBrace BRBs in mass timber structures. The article, written with engineers from Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), Aspect Structural Engineers, and KPFF Consulting Engineers, highlights the use of BRBs in real world projects with three effective methods:

1. Steel frames within mass timber structures

2. Timber frames within mass timber structures

3. Mass timber shearwalls with BRB holdowns

These methods allow the efficient use of BRBs as a lateral system in virtually any mass timber project.
