In addition to the stiffness, strength, and ductility, that are the main requirements of earthquake-resistant buildings, the necessity of reversibility is also essential, and one of the ways to meet this demand is to use materials with high elasticity and low residual strain, such as shape memory alloys (SMAs). The purpose of this study is to determine the seismic fragility curve of steel moment eccentric diagonal bracing frames in 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 20-story structures using HAZUS guidelines using incremental dynamic analysis and determining the amount of reduction in the residual displacement of structures with the SMA performing time history dynamic analysis. Survey the fragility curves of the partial failure level of alloyed structures in different stories, it was concluded that the rate of damage reduction for 3 and 6 stories structures was 23 and 18% and for structures with more stories, it was limited to 4 to 9%. At the level of average failure, the same reduction between structures with different classes using this type of alloy has been seen by an average of 30%. On the other, the reduction was about 40% in the area of ​​extensive damage for short and medium-sized structures, while this reduction was limited to 15% for structures of 12 to 20 stories. Besides, in the level of general failure, the use of SMA has not had much effect in reducing damage, especially in high-rise structures. On the other hand, the reduction in residual displacement for high-rise structures with alloys has been between 80 and 95% of the residual displacement of structures without alloys. Therefore, in terms of reducing damage at different levels, the presence of shaped memory alloy in short-rise structures is more effective than high-rise structures. In terms of reversibility, the use of these materials can be a positive point in reducing damage due to residual displacement in operating time for high-rise buildings.
