Summary
The general objective of this research is to get a better understanding of the structural performance of hybrid building systems in which a light wood frame structure is structurally attached to a mass timber core with a ductile connection system. Specific objectives of this research are: 1. To investigate the pinching effect on the seismic performance of timber structures. 2. To investigate the load distribution between the two sub-systems in a hybrid building, and how will it be affected by the characteristics of inter-connections. 3. To explore the relationship of ductility and energy dissipation capacity among joints, shear walls and the whole buildings.

Summary
This paper describes options for seismic design of pre-fabricated timber core-wall systems, used as stairwells and lift shafts for lateral load resistance in multi-storey timber buildings. The use of Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) panels for multi-storey timber buildings is gaining popularity throughout the world, especially for residential construction...
