Abstract
In this paper, a simplified non-linear procedure for seismic design of CLT (cross-laminated timber) wall systems is presented. The proposed method considers both axial force and bending moment applied on the wall systems as result of applied loads. Timber is modelled as an elastic-brittle material, whereas metal connections (hold-downs and...

Point and line loads are common load cases in slabs, however their effects on timber-concrete composite (TCC) slabs are not fully known. Hence, the importance of investigating the associated structural behaviour and developing technical design rules. For this purpose, an investigation including experimental tests and theoretical analyses...

The seismic behaviour of timber buildings is strongly related to the energy dissipation capacity of connections. According to Standard, since timber is characterized by a brittle failure when subjected to tensile or bending actions, the dissipative zones shall be located in joints and connections, whereas timber members themselves...

Abstract
Advancement in engineered wood products altered the existing building height limitations and enhanced wooden structural members that are available on the market. These coupled with the need for a sustainable and green solution to address the ever-growing urbanization demand, avails wood as possible candidate for primary structural material in the construction industry. To this end, several researches carried out in the past decade to come up with sound structural solutions using a timber based structural system. Green and Karsh (2012) introduced the FFTT system; Tesfamariam et al. (2015) developed force-based design guideline for steel infilled with CLT shear walls, and SOM (2013) introduced the concrete jointed mass timber hybrid structural concepts. In this research, the basic structural concepts proposed by SOM (2013) is adopted. The objective of this research is to develop a wind and earthquake design guideline for concrete jointed tall mass timber buildings in scope from 10- to 40-storey office or residential buildings. The specific objective of this research is as follow: Wind serviceability design guideline for hybrid mass-timber structures. Calibration of design wind load factors for the serviceability wind design of hybrid tall mass timber structures. Guidelines to perform probabilistic modeling, reliability assessment, and wind load factor calibration. Overstrength related modification factor Ro and ductility related modification factor Rd for future implementation in the NBCC. Force-based design guideline following the capacity based design principles.
