This guidance covers the general philosophy of a building's stability system and, specifically, framed vertical bracing.

It considers:

  • Actions and combinations

  • Stability systems

  • Stability during construction, service life and change of use

  • Vertical framed bracing (analysis, design and specification)

  • Diagrids and other trangulated structural forms

Also available as a package with Stability of buildings Part 3 Shear walls, and Part 4: Moment frames.
