This document reports the outcome of the seismic test on the LegnoCase building, the second in a total of four buildings included in the TIMBER BUILDINGS Project. This building is a platform frame system with sheathing assembled by means of OSB panels (PF-OSB). The goal of the tests was to assess the seismic performance of the building, panel elements and steel connectors, defined in terms of relative displacements and hold-down forces.
This report presents the results of the experimental tests carried out in the LNEC 3D shaking table on a platform frame system (PSF) with sheathing assembled by means of OSB panels (PF-OSB) as part of the SERIES Project on multi-storey timber buildings. This project is coordinated by the University of Trento and involves the University of Minho and the Graz University of Technology, at LNEC, in Lisbon. The tests were carried out on June 25, 26, and 27, 2012 on a three storey real scale building.
