lateral bracing

Stabilizing a wall beam or structural system against lateral forces by means of diagonal or cross bracing either horizontally by roof or floor construction or vertically by pilasters, columns or cross walls.

Tenders are invited for completion period: Charging corroded% rusled/cracked top flange plate, gusset plate, lateral bracing, bottom main angle, strengthening of cross girder, provision of Protection screen and changing of loDsei%ccrroded rrvets of Bridge No.
In divergent conventional braces, I-shaped sections are used for building linking beam piece that requires lateral bracing to prevent lateral torsional buckling (that's why in the bridge piers and towers, this system is not used against lateral loads).
ii) Increasing the Stiffness of Both Building by Adding Shear Walls: Since distance between the buildings cannot be increased due to high cost of land and construction difficulties, increasing the stiffness of one or both buildings by providing the shear wall or lateral bracing in such a way it reduce the lateral displacements which can be accommodate between provided seismic gap/separation distance.
The typical failure of prefabricated roof truss assemblies is the direct result of contractors' failure to provide the required lateral bracing necessary to prevent buckling and collective collapse, as is frequently found during forensic examination of collapsed structures.
The timber ribs are tied back to the building's concrete frame by a secondary steel structure and lateral bracing is provided by a cat's cradle of tensile wires.
Increased I-joist spans have led to questions about the lateral stability of these structural framing materials in situations where continuous lateral bracing is not provided along the compression flange, e.
This approach required extensive strengthening or complete replacement of numerous components, including the bearings, truss members, and connections; bottom lateral bracing and connections; and the entire deck system, pier columns, webwalls, footings, and distribution blocks.
Like engineered wood I-joists, steel joists require lateral bracing This can be accomplished by combining a 1 1/2-inch-by-33-MIL steel strap screwed to the bottom of the joists with a section of solid blocking on either side of the strap at the end of the joists (above left).
Tenders are invited for Changing corroded rusted cracked top flange plate, gusset plate lateral bracing bottom man angle, strengthening of cross girder provision of Protection screen and changing of loose/corroded rivets of Bridge No 253UP, 253DN 2460N, 240DN & 210DN In BRKA-GHO Section under SSS/BR/DHN in Division
Among the countermeasures identified in the report are: (1) updating planning and coordination measures, (2) reviewing and sanitizing Web sites for information that may be beneficial to terrorists, (3) enhancing site layouts (such as improving lighting and eliminating access to critical areas), and (4) installing retrofits (such as using energy-absorbing bolts to strengthen connections and adding stiffeners and lateral bracing on steel members).
When a compression web member exceeds the allowable stress for a specific grade and size of the member, lateral bracing is introduced to reduce the effective buckling length of the web.
