UBC – SRC Research Program included series of tests on a full-scale braced frame carried out at the University of British Columbia. The testing program included quasi-static, cyclic and shake-table tests. Work on this research project started 2007 and most of the tests were performed from 2011 to 2013. The test program was performed at the UBC Earthquake Engineering Laboratory by a research team led by Professor Carlos Ventura, in collaboration with Dejan Erdevicki from Erdevicki Structural Engineering. Test frame was donated by L.E. Steel Fabricators Ltd.
