Summary
Fire-testing data, such as charring rates and failure modes of structural elements exposed to ISO-standard fires, for unprotected cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels made of domestic timber were investigated to apply the reduced-cross-section method to CLT panels. For the charring rates, a series of fire tests without loading was conducted...

Summary
The national research project to investigate proper structural design method for CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) buildings has been advanced by the subsidy of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan since 2011. This paper provides the outline of shake table tests executed as a part of the project in February 2015. Two specimens, one (Specimen A) is five story and another (Specimen B) is three story, were tested. As the result, for both specimens damage was rather slight by the strong input wave according to the Building Standard Law of Japan. Finally, Specimen A survived three dimensional input wave of 100% of JMA Kobe (strong ground motion recorded during Kobe Earthquake in 1995), and Specimen B survived 140% of JMA Kobe.

Summary
Using the subject of material culture as a lens through which Japanese urban architectural history and political debates are brought into sharper relief, this thesis argues that manufactured engineered wood products like cross laminated timber (CLT) are a part of the larger ongoing discussion on how to solve urban problems and offer the ability to connect sustainable and resilient building design agendas in cities. In addition, if CLT and other wood-based materials are domestically grown and responsibly manufactured on a larger scale than exists presently in Japan, industrial productivity of wood from local forests will recover after long periods of stagnant development, a move heavily invested by the present Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his administration.

Summary
In this paper, the general process and results of the seismic design on four buildings with Japanese CLT construction after 2014 based on the time history response analysis as the only legal structural design method in Japan at the present moment, are shown. As a result, it is recognized that the buildings has enough seismic performance for the regulation of seismic design in Japan.

Summary
Structural possibility of CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) buildings in Japan is supposed to be smaller than that in other countries because of high seismic risk. In this paper, dealing 2 kind of middle-rise CLT panel construction method as objectives, the required wall quantity from the structural design method ruled in the building standard low of Japan is examined based on the knowledge from the national research project carrying out by the subsidy of MLIT (Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism) of Japan since 2011, and on the Japanese government notifications on structural design of CLT buildings issued on Apr. 1, 2016. As result, the required wall quantity in construction methods using rectangular narrow panel is generally regarded as practicable. However, reduction of wall quantity is expected for prevalence of CLT buildings. On the other hand, in construction methods using large rectangular panels with opening(s), the required wall quantity is confirmed generally 1.6 times larger than the former indicating poor practicability
