Abstract: A particular structural lateral resistive system called "T-shape resistant system (TRS)" is introduced. This new form of framing system is constructed through a deep I-shaped steel beam vertically placed in the middle of the span, connected to two other deep I-shaped beams to the columns at each floor level. In this paper, the R factor components, including the ductility reduction factor and the over strength factor, are extracted from the TRS inelastic pushover analysis having different heights and configurations. Then, by developing a nonlinear finite element model of a simple TRS system, the other properties of this system, such as energy dissipation characteristics, are properly investigated.
