|PDF - Doctoral Thesis|
This thesis regards the study of the seismic behaviour of timber-frame buildings. Three are the main sections. Firstly, the study of the linear and non-linear behaviour of a timber-frame wall subjected to a horizontal force is presented, suggesting some analytical expression to correlate the mechanical behaviour of the entire wall to the mechanical properties of connection devices (i.e. fasteners, angle brackets and hold-down). Particular attention was paid to the ductility of each component. Secondly, a numerical modelling for the seismic linear analysis of multi-storey walls is proposed. In this section the horizontal force distribution between the walls is investigated too. Thirdly, a full-scale shake table test on a prefabricated 3-storey timber-frame building is described.
