If the column isunbraced, i.e.both ends canmove relative toeach other, thenthe additionalmoment is

greater.

Braced and Unbraced Structures

When the structure does not contain members to resist side-sway(lateral forces) then it is an unbraced structure.

Braced and Unbraced StructuresAccording to ECP 203Bracing of RC structures is usuallyprovided by shear walls or cores.

A building without shear walls or coresis considered an unbraced structures.

A building with a shear wall or a core isconsidered braced only if
