Aseismic effect of building houses with wooden house structure
May 03, 2017

The safety factors of building wood structures are enhanced: (1), hundreds of structural components and thousands of nails connected, once a load path is invalidated, adjacent parts and connections can be supplemented. (2), there are lateral aseismic factors of non-structural components such as interior decoration, partitions and various types of external cladding. (3) When sudden loads arise or earthquakes arrive, many nailed connections allow the structure to bend to absorb and dissipate energy. (4), high strength weight ratio. Wooden houses are lighter than other structural buildings, which are a great advantage in earthquakes. In low-rise buildings, no building materials are more capable of resisting seismic loads than timber structures, providing greater security and higher reliability. The wooden frame structure can cater to the need of the connection, connectivity and anchoring of the wall. Large wooden frame buildings can be achieved by effective engineering to achieve the purpose of earthquake resistance. Aseismic superiority and structure principle: compared with other materials, wooden frame structure has the following key seismic advantages: (1), wooden frame structure has many rod and nail joints, which means that there are many load paths absorbing the seismic force exerted. (2) The nail node in the wooden frame structure can effectively dissipation the energy generated by the earthquake. (3), timber in prison and light-the quality is lighter is an advantage, which means that the effect of the earthquake on the house is also small.
