Abstract

In order to develop seismic codes that can effectively mitigate damage to wood-frame construction under seismic activity, the dynamic characteristics of wood-frame buildings must be well understood. Toward this end, this data interpretation project focuses on the dynamic behavior of low-rise wooden shearwall buildings under large seismic motions. The procedure includes determining the modal parameters and extracting hysteretic characteristics from the available records
