Re: Racking strength of timber frame walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Try TRADA in UK. They have conducted monotonic tests (load in one
direction) but may know if some in Europe are doing cyclic reversed load
tests.  There is a CEN test under development for cyclic loading of
fasteners.  Dr. Ario Ceccotti at one of the universities in Italy has
experience in cyclic load tests of shear walls.
