Description

Special Topic: Advanced Timber Structures

The course will cover the following three topics related to structural design of multi-storey timber buildings and will introduce some recent research and development in timber construction.

1. Design review of conventional and specialised structural timber products and systems. It covers solid sawn timber, engineered timber products including glulam, CLT and LVL, conventional light-timber frame systems including low-rise and mid-rise residential buildings, multi-storey heavy timber systems, and mass timber construction.

2. Advanced professional practice in the design of connection systems with the focus on new edition of timber standard NZS/AS 1720.1 Timber structures. It includes conventional dowel-type fasteners such as dowels, bolts, and nails.  New connection types such as SFS self-drilling dowels, glued-in rods, and self-tapping long screws, castellated joints will be covered as well.

3. Advanced seismic design of multi-storey timber buildings. It includes capacity design of timber systems, understanding ductility, overstrength in lateral load resisting systems. Recent research and development on post-tensioned rocking wall systems will be introduced as well.

Learning Outcomes

  • The learning outcomes of the course will be:

  • To be familiar with various conventional and innovative engineered timber products and their applications
  • To have advanced specialist knowledge of conventional dowel-type connection design based on the new NZ timber standard, European yield model, and innovative connection technologies
  • To understand the force-based seismic design approach and displacement-based approach and their applications in specialised design of multi-storey timber buildings
  • To have a critical awareness of recent trends in the research literature with regard to the development of mass timber construction for taller timber buildings
