Analysis Of Vertical Bents With Tension-Only X-Bracing

Analysis Of Vertical Bents With Tension-Only X-Bracing


XBRACING is a spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of analyzing X-braced bents with tension-only systems. From 1-story up to 10-story bents may be analyzed. 
Specifically, given the bent width, the story heights, and the lateral story loads, all the member (segment) forces are determined, as well as the horizontal and vertical reactions at the supports, and the individual story drifts (horizontal deflections).
