Summary
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...

Summary
This study introduces a new resilient slip friction joint for framed hybrid structures. The proposed connection has a self-centring behaviour in addition to damping characteristic. This innovative Resilient Slip Friction (RSF) joint is replaced with the conventional beam to column connections. The RSF joint provides energy dissipation...

Summary
Glued laminated timber Tudor arches have been in wide use in the United States since the 1930s, but detailed knowledge related to seismic design in modern U.S. building codes is lacking. FEMA P-695 (P-695) is a methodology to determine seismic performance factors for a seismic force resisting system. A limited P-695 study for...

Summary
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is widely perceived as the most promising option for building high-rise wood structures due to its structural robustness and good fire resistance. While gravity load design of a tall CLT building is relatively easy to address...
