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
The Chair of Structures and Structural Design of the RWTH Aachen University, in cooperation with the Institute of Building Materials Research Aachen (ibac) and SPAX® International, has developed timber connections using self-tapping screws as reinforcing and joining elements. The focus was put on rigid frame corners that achieved...

Abstract
Glulam members which are manufactured with Japanese cedar plantation timber are constructed into a box type of portal frames to investigate the moment-resisting performance when subjected to a lateral load. The joints of the frame are connected using aluminium connectors and self-tapping screw fasteners...
