Abstract

The objective of this paper is to evaluate the seismic performance of wooden structures. First, shaking table tests and static tests of wooden unit frames installing various seismic elements have been carried out. Mud-plastered walls and penetrating tie beams were included in the soecimens by considering Japanese traditional structure. From the results of these tests, the dynamic characteristics of wooden frames in terms of damage processes, hysteretic characteristics and hysteretic energy dissipation are clarified. From the comparison of dynamic tests and static tests, it is found that the skeleton curves of two tests are almost similar. It is emphasized that wooden frames with mud-plastered wall have the large deformability.
