    Abstract: The Hyogo-ken Nanbu earthquake (Kobe earthquake) of January 17, 1995 caused extensive and severe damage to numerous Kobe city area buildings. After the earthquake, many steel structures were constructed using exposed-type column-base joints. Nevertheless, the capacity of these joints to absorb energy during earthquakes is small. For that reason, in... Show More
