Rocking timber walls provide an excellent lateral load resisting system for structures using the low damage seismic design philosophy. Special attention has to be given to the wall-to-floor connections, because diaphragm forces have to be properly...
This study investigates the in-plane behaviour of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) floor diaphragms and lateral load distribution within buildings containing CLT floors. Detailed 2D finite element models of CLT floors and buildings were generated in ANSYS, t...
