Progress in seismic research of wood structures in New Zealand (2019)
New Zealand's seismic experience shows that wood structure as a reliable structural system can fully meet the seis mic design requirements of large earthquakes. However, structural and non-structural damage caused by earthquakes often re sults in huge repair costs. This paper briefly introduces the application of modern wood structures in New Zealand and related design specification systems. At the same time, the author also gave a brief introduction to the latest research topics of a series of light wood houses and multi-story wood structures. The research focuses on how to improve the seismic toughness of wood structures, limit structural damage, and control the losses caused by structural deformation.

Analytical derivation and experimental verification of overstrength factors of dowel-type timber connections for capacity design Ottenhaus L-M; Li M; Smith T (2020)In timber structures, connections traditionally provide ductility and energy dissipation under seismic loading. Capacity design ensures that the global structural response is ductile by applying overstrength to the design ...
