Abstract

The objective of this study is demonstrative elucidation of mechanical characteristics of timber frame structures with large hanging walls in order to construct a reasonable and practical seismic evaluation method. First, we conduct static loading tests of timber frame structures with full walls or large hanging walls which have different specifications of walls and the number of spans. Second, we analyze damage states and mechanical characteristics of the specimens and their elements such as mud wall, columns and Sashigamoi. Finally, we reveal the applicability and problems of the current methods based on the test results.
