Shake table testing of hybrid wood shear wall system
Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) is an engineered, prefabricated mass timber product that has shown excellent structural and mechanical properties. With the growing application of CLT in industry, there have been a number of research projects carried out to introduce CLT in tall buildings located in high seismic regions. The concept of post-tensioning mass timber has been adopted from concrete systems and this led to development of seismically resilient structural systems that can undergo multiple earthquake and continue to re-center. This thesis presents the results of a shake table test program ...
