- Engineering: Reports 
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.

Granello G; Leyder C; Frangi A; Palermo A; Chatzi E (2018)The concept of post-tensioned timber structures has been developed and implemented since 2005. The technology relies on un-bonded post-tensioned timber elements to create a moment resisting connection. After several years ...
Development and testing of an alternative dissipative post-tensioned rocking timber wall with boundary columns Sarti, F.; Palermo, A.; Pampanin, Stefano (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2016)The unbonded post-tensioned rocking and dissipative technology was first developed as the main outcome of the PRESSS (PREcast Seismic Structural Systems) Program in US. After the first developments and significant refinement, ...
Full-scale Static and Dynamic Testing of Timber Frame Houses Damaged in the Christchurch Earthquakes Morris H; Carradine D; Li M (2018)Very little research exists on total house seismic performance. This testing programme provides stiffness and response data for five houses of varying ages including contributions of non-structural elements. These light ...
