BRB (plural BRBs)
- (archaeology) Initialism of or bevel-rimmed bowl: a small, undecorated, mass-produced clay bowl, most commonly from the 4th millennium B.C.
- (engineering) Initialism of : a structural brace in a building or other structure, designed to allow the building to withstand cyclical lateral loadings.

- To provide a more reliable source of energy dissipation, the concept of Buckling-Restrained Brace (BRB) was first developed in Japan in the early 1970s. Extensive research was since conducted in Japan and a variety of BRBs have been developed.

- Moreover, the outer casing is filled with concrete to ensure BRB components remain separated and prevent composite action. Then, BRB brace is submitted into a concentric braced frame, producing a BRBF system.

- The damper mega brace system adds an 8% supplemental damping that helps reduce both wind and seismic excitations. The system is made up of three braces in one (Fig. 6.31B): primary BRB brace and two external secondary BRB braces with viscous dampers at the ends (see Chapter 8, Section 8.1.10 for more details about this building).
