Theme 1 – Structural and Serviceability Performance
Project T1-1 – Refined Structural Analysis and Design of Timber Systems
PI: Alexander Salenikovich
Braced timber frames (BTFs) are one of the most efficient structural systems in terms of lateral load resistance. The main objective of this sub-project is to generate technical information related to the performance of different types of innovative BTFs for mass timber and hybrid construction. Based on modelling and analysis, innovative braced frame system suitable for high-performance (low damage) and self-centering capability (Gauron et al. 2015) will be developed.
