Abstract

Korean prefers the post-and-beam construction with exposed very large-scale structural members to building with light wood frames, as with the 2-by-4 method of construction and pre-fabricated methods. One potential solution is the use of skin timbers. In this study, we performed experiments on with non-bored and bored small clear samples in order to determine the bearing strength of the bored specimens compared with the non-bored specimens and to determine the difference in performance between them as a function of the load direction. This study showed that when the clear small specimens were bored, their bearing strength was considerably reduced and there was a large difference in bearing strength between the parallel and perpendicular load directions. We conclude that additional research with full-sized Skin Timber is required.
