EBF example problem (easy for morning lateral)

A W18x50 link beam has been deemed adequate for an eccentrically braced frame. What link length is required to keep the beam link controlled by shear yielding.

The answer should most nearly be 4'-0". Finding e=1.6Mp/Vp. Let me know if this is way off base. I haven't looked much at the EBF systems yet.

Sorry for the late reply. The answer is 45" as can be seen in table 3-1 of the seismic provisions.
