Title: Development of a Performance-Based Seismic Design Philosophy for Mid-Rise Woodframe Construction (NEES-2011-0138)
Year Of Curation: 2011
Description: This project dealt with the shake table testing program of a full-scale two-story woodframe townhouse building conducted within the NEESWood Project. The test building represents the worlda??s largest woodframe structure tested on a shake table. The size and weight of the test structure required the simultaneous use of the two tri-axial shake tables at the University at Buffalo UB-NEES site. The testing program is focusing on the various construction elements that may have significant influence on the seismic response of woodframe buildings and that should be considered in performance-based seismic design.
