The alignment chart presented gives valid sidesway buckling solutions if the columns are in the elastic range and all columns in a story reach their individual buckling loads simultaneously. For columns that do not satisfy these two conditions, the chart is generally conservative. The design methods were developed which can be used for the latter s...

... Leaning columns are modeled as elastic beam column elements with high axial stiffness connected to the SFRS using axially rigid truss elements. An easy way to demonstrate the leaning column mechanism is through the Yura approach (Yura, 1971) Leaning columns should not contribute to the flexural resistance of the building; this can be satisfied either by modeling rotational springs with low stiffness at the ends of the leaning columns or by considering a low bending rigidity for the leaning columns. Both approaches lead to the same analysis results, however, the latter is easier to implement in OpenSeesPy, and therefore used in this study. ...
