Abstract
Timber provides attractive earthquake performance characteristics for regions of high seismic risk, particularly its high strength-to-weight ratio; however, current timber structural systems are associated with relatively low design force reduction factors due to their low inherent ductility when compared to high-performance concrete and steel...

Abstract
To improve the seismic performance of mid-rise heavy timber moment-resisting frames, a hybrid timber-steel moment-resisting connection was developed that incorporates specially detailed replaceable steel yielding link elements fastened to timber beams and columns using self-tapping screws (STS). Performance of the connection was...

Abstract
We propose the high productivity timber joint system based on combining the medium-sized wood lumber as assembly large cross-section member. In general, the wood frame structures are required high ductility performance. In this study, the surfaces of the member joints are covered with fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) to...

Abstract
This paper presents an experimental study into the lateral response of cross-laminated-timber (CLT) shear walls under cyclic loads with particular attention to the distribution of forces between the panel-to-floor connections. Six tests on full-scale specimens of different geometric characteristics and connection configurations are...
