Meimand, V., et al. (2016) "Incremental Dynamic Analysis and Seismic Performance Evaluation of an Aluminum Framed Building Compared with Steel", Eighth International Conference on Steel and Aluminium Structures, Edited by B. Young, Hong Kong, China, December 7 – 9, 2016.However, I would NOT recommend following the R-factor in the reference, because this study is based on unwelded moment frame (or ignoring welding effect). Since welded aluminum strength is often less than half of unwelded strength, and the moment is maximum at the welded moment connection, the study, and the R-factor may not be appropriate, without further studies.Hope this helps.
