Details

This book provides an experimental analysis of timber-framed walls, coated with single sheathing boards fastened to a timber frame, usually used as main bearing capacity elements in the construction of prefabricated timber structures. As designers or producers usually find themselves in an important dilemma which sheathing board is better to use according to the known height and location of the building, the aim of the presented analysis is comparison of the results measured on test samples covered either with fibre-plaster or wood-based sheathing boards. Therefore, the presented conclusions, supported by the measured results, give some important indications in behaviour of the timber-frame wall elements covered with different sheathing boards according to the known horizontal load and consequently, could give some important recommendations in designing of tall timber-frame buildings located on heavy windy or seismic area.
