One level I randomized controlled trial on 1396 military cadets participating in intramural tackle football (26) showed significant differences between braced and unbraced groups.
The other study, a non-randomized level 2 prospective cohort study on protection against medial collateral ligament sprains in 987 collegiate football players, showed a non-significant trend towards lower injury rate in braced players (27).
Eccentrically braced system was presented in 1978 by Popov et al [3].
In the proposed system, columns, beams and braced members is remained elastically and the energy is absorbed by plastic deformations of connection link and due to the short length of bracing members, buckling modes of behavior were not dominant on the system no matter what the lateral load is applied to the frame, the same behavior (oblique connection link shear) from the structure can be seen.
Fulop and Dubina performed six series of full-scale wall tests with various types of cladding arrangements including X-strap braced frames, corrugated sheathed walls, gypsum board sheathed panels, and oriented strand board (OSB) sheathed panels.
performed some surveys about the situation of the gypsum board walls on seismic performance of rolled cold steel structural walls braced by crossed straps.
The means and standard deviations of displacement data for braced and nonbraced tests were calculated at 30, 60, 90, 120 and 150 Newton force levels and paired t tests (at 5% level) were used to determine if the results were significantly different.
They found that there were significant changes in knee joint position between the braced versus nonbraced conditions.
The proposed design procedure is limited to 2 by 4 webs braced by a single 2 by 4 centered on the truss web.
The objectives of this research were to: 1) determine the required net lateral restraining force to brace multiple webs or chords in a row braced by one or more continuous lateral braces (CLBs); and 2) develop a methodology for permanent bracing design using a combination of lateral and diagonal braces.
