Abstract
This paper investigates the hysteretic performance of self-centering beam-to-column connections for glulam structures. Such connections incorporate a posttensioned high-strength steel strand to provide recentering capability, and an energy dissipation device (a special steel cap or a pair of steel angles) was installed to increase shear resistance...

Structures assembled with cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, and designed to resist gravity and lateral loads, are being considered as viable options for low-rise to mid-rise buildings. In this paper, an analytical approach based on the minimum total potential energy principle has been developed in order to determine the mechanical behavior of 1-story multipanel CLT walls...

Abstract
Allowing a wall to rock and uplift during a seismic event can cap the forces and minimize the postevent residual damage. Slip friction connections comprised of flat steel plates sliding over each other have been experimentally tested as the hold-down connectors in timber shear walls and performed well in terms of the hysteretic behavior and the energy dissipation rate...

Abstract
The increasing interest in cross-laminated timber (CLT) construction has resulted in multiple international research projects and publications covering the manufacturing and performance of CLT. Multiple regions and countries have adopted provisions for CLT into their engineering design standards and building regulations. Designing and building CLT structures, also in earthquake-prone regions is no longer a domain for early adopters, but is becoming a part of regular timber engineering practice...

Abstract
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.
