Plan views of steel moment-frame buildings:
Plan views of the structural framing system of five prototype steel moment-frame buildings are shown, with overall plan dimensions of 30.48 m by 45.72 m. Buildings 1, 2, and 3 have a 5 bay by 5 bay plan layout, while buildings 4 and 5 have a 3 bay by 5 bay layout. Buildings 1 and 4 are designed for seismic design category C and use intermediate moment frames to carry lateral loads, while buildings 2, 3, and 5 are designed for seismic design category D and use special moment frames to carry lateral loads. Buildings 1, 2, and 4 have moment frames only on the exterior of the buildings, while buildings 3 and 5 have moment frames in the interior as well.
