This document outlines the basis of design for the performance-based design and nonlinear response history analysis of the Framework Project in Portland, OR. Performance-based design is pursued for this project because the proposed lateral force-resisting system, consisting of post-tensioned rocking cross-laminated timber (CLT) walls is not included in ASCE/SEI 7-10 Table 12.2-1.
The objectives of this project are to develop a design methodology and to demonstrate performance for exterior bearing CLT walls used in buildings subject to force protection requirements. This methodology should be published by U.S. Army Corp of Enginee...
Practice Periodical on Structural Design and Construction
With a growing interest in using timber as a structural material for tall buildings in response to trends in sustainable design, several timber buildings between 7 and 10 stories have been built in Europe and Australia. However, in the United States, timber buildings are still limited to 6 or fewer stories...
This paper presents the results of an experimental study on the use of carbon fiber–reinforced polymer sheets as reinforcement for the rotational behavior of bolted glulam beam-to-column connections. Monotonic loading was applied on connection specimens to identify their stiffness, ductility, and maximum moment resistance values. Material property...
