Design of Connections for Post Tensioned Rocking Timber Frames
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2015)
Pres-Lam technology aims to allow timber to stand alongside concrete and steel as a material of choice for multi-storey frame structures. It combines Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) structural members post-tensioning and ...
Analysis and design of Laminated Veneer Lumber beams with holes
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2013)
Timber has experienced new interest as a building material in recent times. Although traditionally in New Zealand it has been the main choice for residential construction, with recently introduced engineered wood products ...
Dynamic response of post-tensioned timber frame buildings
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2011)
An extensive research program is on-going at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand to develop new technologies to permit the construction of multi-storey timber buildings in earthquake prone areas. The system combines ...
Structural Performance of Post-tensioned Timber Frames under Gravity Loading
(University of Canterbury. Department of Civil and Natural Resources engineering, 2013)
A new structural system for multi-storey timber buildings has been developed over the last seven years at the University of Canterbury. The system incorporates large timber structural frames, whereby semi-rigid beam-column ...
