ERBS(Enhanced Reduced Beam Section Connections)




ERBS-H TYPE


ERBS-BH TYPE



ERBS provides steel moment frame buildings with superior energy dissipation
and reduces material waste, compared to RBS.

This design achieves a reliability level equivalent to that of RBS
by applying the prequalified section connection recommended in FEMA-350.

The ERBS design procedure is in accordance with the Building Standard Law of Japan.
