THE SEISMIC DESIGN OF TIMBER STRUCTURES

THE SEISMIC DESIGN OF TIMBER STRUCTURES

Program:

  • Brief introduction – 5 minutes
  • The seismic design of timber structures – 55 minutes

Speaker:

Matteo Andreottola

Content:

Timber structures are working great in seismic areas and this is one of the big potentials that this material has. Of course, the ratio resistance/weight of wood is very good compared to other structural materials. Timber is flexible, but it is not a ductile material, therefore steel connections have a very important role to achieve a good behaviour.

Find out how to design connection in a proper way in order to achieve a good seismic behaviour. Learn more about full scale seismic tests, the behavior of the structure in a earthquake, the design principles to be sure to build structureswhich can support well horizontal loads.

Learn which are the most innovative connectors for the shear walls, to optimize the building time and resistance, with engineered connectors.
