The seismic behaviour of buildings erected in Solid Timber Construction

The report produced by the Institute of Timber Engineering and Wood Technology of Graz University of Technology “The seismic behaviour of buildings erected in Solid Timber Construction, G. Schickhofer, A. Ringhofer” is now available for download. It refers to the seismic design according to EN 1998 for a 5-storey reference building in CLT. In the section Tutorials & Samples you can download the sample file of the structure modeled with our software TimberTech Buildings.

CLT Training Course – COST Action FP 1004

The University of Trento has hosted from 15 to 17 April the Training Course “Structural design of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT)”. 80 among professors, researchers and technicians in the field of timber structures from 23 countries, were able to exchange views for 3 days on the design and calculation of CLT elements. A course to be repeated!

Seismic testing on shaking table

Watch the results of the new seismic tests of wooden buildings performed by the University of Trento!

The Timber Structures Research Group of the University of Trento, coordinated by Prof. Maurizio Piazza and Prof. Roberto Tomasi, was the leader of the project for the seismic characterization of four wooden buildings designed with different construction types:

  • blockhaus
  • platform frame
  • platform frame with gypsum fibreboard
  • CLT
