Summary
In timber research, a main objective is the development and promotion of innovative and efficient timber structures. Therefore a pilot building, named ETH House of Natural Resources, has been designed, which uses two innovative structural systems, a post-tensioned timber frame and a composite beech LVL concrete floor. The building will be used as an office building for the Laboratory of Hydraulics, Hydrology and Glaciology from ETH Zürich and will serve as a showcase building of a sustainable and reliable timber construction for students and researchers, among others.

Summary
Feasibility of using rapid grown Japanese cedar glulam for constructing a portal frame was examined. A 2500x3000-mm portal frame was constructed with 140x305-mm glulam members and subjected to a lateral cyclic load. The connections between post and beam members were fastened with 8 16-mm pins. Resulted moment resistance of the frame fastened with pins in square placement performed better than that with in circular placement. While the inserted metal plate in L-type showed higher initial stiffness and energy absorption than that in straight metal plate. The stress distribution of glulam post indicated shifts of neutral axis and deflection point as the cyclic load increases.

Summary
As part of Fast + Epp’s ongoing work to push the boundaries of Tall Wood construction in seismic zones, this testing program aims to develop a new dissipative system for use in timber braced frames or other timber lateral systems where the connections provide energy dissipation. The connections are designed to dissipate energy through ductile steel plates to provide robust and well understood dissipative systems. In collaboration with the Advanced Research in Timber Systems’ team at the University of Alberta, Fast + Epp is working on a four-phase testing program for cyclic and monotonic testing of various configurations of perforated plate connections. Small scale tests have been completed on perforated plates, and entire connections will be examined in advance of a full-scale timber brace frame test to evaluate the overall behaviour. One phase of physical testing was completed in January 2020, with the next 3 phases intended to be completed in 2021. Initial data analysis of the first phase testing has resulted in tuning of the system in advance of later phase testing. Results on the first two or three phases of testing are anticipated to be completed in 2020 with initial publication of the results in early 2021.

Summary
This study aimed to present a solution in glued laminated timber to replace frame structures built in reinforced concrete and metallic structure, which are common in agricultural buildings in western Paraná such as those destined to laying poultry house building by agricultural cooperatives. Structural behavior of frames build from Araucaria angustifolia glued boards and vegetable oil-based polyurethane adhesive was evaluated. Tests were carried out to characterize wood and adhesive to obtain verification/sizing parameters. Initially, a full-scale structural project was conducted to meet standard laying poultry house specifications. Afterwards, five units of straight three-articulated frames on a 1:2.5 reduced scale were designed, built, and subjected to strength tests until breaking. They were built with a 2-meter free span and a 15° slope, suitable for using metal roof tiles. The average for structure ultimate strength was 4.14 times the design load. Structures had satisfactory mechanical performance and displacements lower than those recommended by NBR 7190 (1997) standard (ABNT). Therefore, building glued frames with Parana pine boards and vegetable oil-based glue is technically feasible.
