Description

As the desire to construct tall wood buildings grows, so too does the need to understand the behaviour of these structures under all loading conditions. Work is progressing towards understanding their behaviour under extreme lateral loads, but relatively little focus is given in the literature to their behaviour under normal service-level loads. This study investigates the behaviour of 10-storey mass-wood shear-core structures subjected to static wind loads, and identifies major differences between the behaviour of the wood-core buildings and that of a traditional shear-core building. The design process is described, and both Ultimate and Serviceability Limit States results are presented, including base shear and overturning moments for lateral loads, shear lag in the core walls and lateral deformation behaviour. Special attention is paid to the impact that the low in-plane shear modulus of the mass-wood panels has on the behaviour of mass-wood structures. This investigation contributes to a fundamental understanding of the lateral response of mass-wood shear-core structures subjected to service-level wind loads.
