RATIONAL LATERAL BRACING DESIGN FOR STEEL FRAMED DOMESTIC STRUCTURES
Grant number: LP110100430 | Funding period: 2011 - 2014

This project will provide the industry with the necessary tools to develop optimised and innovative solutions to brace houses for extreme events and yet maintain affordability.
