International Conference on Theoretical, Applied and Experimental Mechanics
At the beginning of the 20th century, a new wood manufacturing technology, i.e. cross-laminated timber (CLT), was started. In Taiwan, the manufacturing technology of CLT has just started recently. For the sake of safety, the information of stiffness and strength of the shear wall of the CLT are essential for structural designs. In this paper, by following the method B (ISO 16670 Protocol) of ASTM standard E2126-11, shear test of a real-scale CLT shear wall was performed. The measured shear modulus and cyclic test results of the CLT shear wall were reported in this paper. By using the three-dimensional digital image correlation technique, full-field deformation information of the CLT shear wall were obtained.
