Long-term performance of post-tensioned LVL frames and walls
This report contains a collective summary of six long-term experiments being performed on post-tensioned LVL frames and walls at the University of Canterbury, University of Auckland and University Technology of Sydney from 2007 to 2012. Although some tests reported herein were before the formation of STIC (Structural Timber Innovation Company Ltd.) or did not come under the umbrella of STIC, most of the tests were funded by STIC. The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the aforementioned long-term tests, report on important summarised findings and lessons, and provide current progress status. Where further details are required, the respective references should be sought.
