An evaluation of the seismic behaviour of post-and-beam timber buildings braced with timber shear walls by means of numerical simulations performed with non-linear elastic analysis is presented in the paper. Three different structural configurations are considered: two storeys and three storeys regular buildings and two storeys non-regular in plan building. The dissipative capacities of the systems were localized in correspondence of the connections; their non-linear behavior was assessed experimentally, numerically or analytically.

Abstract

An evaluation of the seismic behaviour of post-and-beam timber buildings braced with timber shear walls by means of numerical simulations performed with non-linear elastic analysis is presented in the paper. Three different structural configurations are considered: two storeys and three storeys regular buildings and two storeys non-regular in plan building. The dissipative capacities of the systems were localized in correspondence of the connections; their non-linear behavior was assessed experimentally, numerically or analytically. The results evidenced good seismic performances in terms of global ductility and resisting ground acceleration and evidenced a similar behavior for the three analysed buildings.
