Steel Multi-Tiered Special Concentrically Braced Frames (MT-SCBFs) are commonly used in North America as a lateral load-resisting system of tall single-story buildings. Multi-Tiered configuration is typically used when a single braced panel is impractical. MT-CBFs are composed of multiple tiers of diagonal braces stacked on top of each other along the height of the story such that tiers are separated by strut beams. This arrangement allows the brace lengths to be reduced resulting in smaller sections. As a consequence, the design forces on adjacent members such as struts, columns, and connections are lowered. It has been demonstrated that MT-SCBF columns designed in accordance with the 2010 US Seismic Provisions (AISC 341) are prone to buckling due to non-uniform distribution of inelastic seismic demands along the frame height, which leads to high in-plane bending demands in columns. Such bending demand was not addressed in the 2010 Seismic Provisions. However, special design provisions have been introduced in the current requirements to address flexural demands imposed on MT-SCBF columns. Nevertheless, the recent improvements lack full-scale experimental testing and comprehensive finite element simulations featuring current guidelines. In this study, the seismic design methods for MT-SCBFs are evaluated using the finite element method. First, a two-tiered SCBF was designed in accordance with the 2010 and 2016 requirements. A detailed finite element model of the frame was then created using the ABAQUS program and a non-linear dynamic analysis was performed. Results of analyses confirmed that the inelastic deformations in the frame, designed using the 2010 requirements, are not uniformly distributed but rather concentrated in one of the tiers; whereas, the current design method significantly reduces the concentration of inelastic deformation demands in a single tier and prevents failure of MT-SCBFs caused by column buckling. Additionally, column flexural demands are overestimated when designing using the current seismic provisions.
