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
Tendency in modern architecture is to increase the glass surface in buildings towards high living quality and low energy consumption. The main goal of this research is to describe the structural performance of glass components by joining the glass with supplementary material such as timber. Composite beams capable of carrying loads and resisting...
