Summary
While the emphasis in the timber industry understandably focuses predominately on complete mass timber structures, opportunities to substantially expand the mass timber market exist using composite timber-steel systems. Timber-steel composite systems have a high potential to be an economically, architecturally, and structurally feasible system to expand the usage of timber panels for mid-rise and high-rise structures where mass timber is currently not a feasible option. In this novel system, prefabricated timber panels replace reinforced concrete slabs to provide the floor and diaphragm elements that work compositely with steel beams and to improve the structural performance compared to either individual material. Considerable testing effort outside the US has explored the feasibility and benefits of these composite systems. This has led to implementation of this novel system on a number of international construction projects. However, the topic has not been assimilated by researchers and practitioners in the US. Hence, this proposal focuses on identifying and removing barriers and providing design guidance on using steel-timber composite systems in US construction. The proposal: (i) Engages a diverse body of stakeholders in an advisory panel and workshop, (ii) Completes engineering-based testing and analysis to demonstrate feasibility, (iii) Performs constructability studies (i.e., construction cost, speed, env. impact), and (iv) Establishes preliminary design guidelines and approaches. The goal of the project will be to demonstrate the performance and economy of a timber-steel composite system(s) and establish preliminary design guidelines and approaches for target stakeholders. Ultimately, the project will develop experimentally validated design-detailing configurations and establish design specifications for new mass timber markets in multiple construction sectors.

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
A finite element model is developed to analyse, as a function of volume fraction, the effects of reinforcement geometry and arrangement within a timber beam. The model is directly validated against experimental equivalents and found to never be mismatched by more than 8% in respect to yield strength predictions. Yield strength increases linearly as a function of increasing reinforcement volume fraction, while the flexural modulus follows more closely a power law regression fit. Reinforcement geometry and location of reinforcement are found to impact both the flexural properties of timber-steel composite beams and the changes due to an increase in volume fraction.

Summary
The concept of combining folded thin steel plates and glued laminated timber in the beam element to gain increased structural and fire performances was developed at the Institute of Structural Design and Timber Engineering (ITI) in Vienna University of Technology. The authors conducted non-loaded combustion tests and numerical simulations of the three different types of such cross-sections, and results from combustion tests and numerical simulations are discussed.
