This article reports an experimental program conducted to assess the adequacy of low invasivity dissipative bracing under reversed cyclic loading of high amplitude. Test results are presented for a reduced scale tension-compression bracing system that incorporates either friction or yield devices. The results obtained highlight the ability of the proposed bracing system to provide a framed structure with reliable supplemental sources of both, hysteretic damping and non-decaying lateral strength.
