|Title:||NIST Research on Structural Performance of Housing Systems|
|Published:||April 01, 2001|
|Abstract:||An outline of NIST research in the area of structural performance of housing systems is presented in this paper. The performance of wood-frame houses in past earthquakes and hur-ricanes is summarized, and the state-of-the-art in experimental and analytical research conducted on wood-frame components and systems is pre-sented. While significant progress has been made in analytical modeling and testing of shear walls and diaphragms, only limited progress has been made on the testing and modeling of com-plete houses and inter-component connections. Ongoing and future research efforts at NIST are introduced, and the program objective and tech-nical approach are presented. Finally, a brief discussion of current experimental work, along with some initial results, is presented and dis-cussed.|
