Summary
Hybrid composite glulam timber reinforced using deformed steel bars and epoxy resin adhesive (RGTSB), was significantly developed in Kagoshima University. In this paper, a beam-to-beam connection for RGTSB and experimental data on the connection are presented. Two 2:3-scaled simply-supported beams under four-point flexural bending in short-term loading, connection elements under short and long-term tension loading were tested. The connection for RGTSB beam performed on bending behaviour such as non-connection RGTSB beam, especially better on ductility.

Summary
Hybrid composite glulam timber reinforced using deformed steel bars and epoxy resin adhesive (RGTSB), was significantly developed in Kagoshima University. In this paper, new experimental data on structural behaviour of CLT-to-the RGTSB composite beams is presented. Two full-scale simply-supported beams were tested under four-point flexural bending in elastic or until destructive. The beam composite sections were built up of a top flange part made of CLT slab and a web part made of RGTSB rectangular section. The CLT slab and the web part were mechanically fastened using thread self-tapping screws. Experimental parameters of the specimens are the arrangement of the steel bars in RGTSB beams, the thickness of the slab, and the spacing pitch of the screws.

Summary
Cross laminated timber (CLT) has been rapidly developed and utilized for multi-rise constructions in recent years, even high-rise CLT buildings with 40 stories have been proposed and designed. A use of unbonded post-tensioning (PT) steel bars through over CLT walls of the high-rise CLT buildings to take up the tensile forces produced by wind load has been considered, following the regulations of unbonded post-tensioned (UPT) concrete walls. This paper introduces a finite element model to simulate the nonlinear lateral load behavior of the UPT high-rise CLT buildings with elastic connections between the CLT elements. The analysis results indicate that the unbonded PT bars can effectively reduce the lateral displacement of the high-rise CLT building. While compared with a theoretical full rigid CLT model, the advanced model is found to be more accurate for estimating the response of UPT high-rise CLT building under horizontal load.
