F’C-BRB Struts (Buckling Restrained Brace)

Thanks to the continuous work in our R&D department, efe-Prima-ce provide energy dissipators struts style with restrained buckling (F’C-BRB struts). These struts are made in our country and have been tested in EIA University. Results have shown an excellent performance for seismic-resistant structures.

These structural elements can be considered as advanced struts or energy dissipators when talking about seismic performance of a construction.

As opposed to common struts, advanced struts can support compression charges without suffering elastic buckling. That is the origin of its initials: BRB (Buckling-Restrained Brace).

Additionally, energy dissipation techniques have the goal of placing strategically “sacrificed” structural elements in a main structural system. These elements have to absorb and dissipate vibration energies caused by earthquakes to the structure, reducing this way seismic damage on structural and non-structural elements. BRB struts are energy dissipators with an excellent structural performance.

F’C-BRB struts are made with local materials and staff. They can be used in buildings replacing common metallic struts for a better performance. These structural elements improve the damping of the whole structural system. Several tests have shown their great capacity to dissipate energy.

F’C-BRB struts have been tested in laboratories from prestigious academic institutions of Colombia.

The results of these tests prove that performance of F’C-BRB struts is similar to the level of leader countries in development and implementation of energy dissipators such as Japan.
