Due to the seismic dangers in the buildings, it is necessary that engineers consider newer and more suitable ways to resist against the seismic forces regularly. The Buckling Restrained Brace (BRB) are almost the new systems against the seismic forces that generally have more ductility in comparison with other lateral loading systems. In this study, the building 5 story with eccentric buckling restrained braces are designed by ETABS software and then two dimensional side frame is modelled by ABAQUS software in order to investigate the effect of material and specifications of link beam variations on the cyclic performance of eccentric buckling restrained brace. Therefore, first its link beam was modeled with soft steel ST37, then with high strength steel ST52 and finally with hardening bond and reduced surface area by 20%, 40% and 60% (6 models totally). The results show that the highest resistance is related to the sample whose link beam is with the stiffener. Also, the highest plasticity belongs to the model whose link beam is modeled with ST52.
