A computer program for seismic analysis of woodframe structures (CUREE publication) by Bryan Folz and Andre Filiatrault | Jan 1, Paperback. Furthermore, the SAWS program requires a minimum amount of data input and provides a fast computational turnaround time in which to analyze a given structure. As a result, this simple numerical may be a useful structural analysis tool for practicing engineers and researchers involved in the seismic design and/or analysis of woodframe by:   This numerical model has been incorporated into the computer program SAWS (seismic analysis of woodframe structures). This paper discusses model formulation. In Part II, the predictive capabilities of this program are compared with recent shake table tests performed on a full-scale two-story woodframe by: Seismic analysis is a subset of structural analysis and is the calculation of the response of a building (or nonbuilding) structure to is part of the process of structural design, earthquake engineering or structural assessment and retrofit (see structural engineering) in regions where earthquakes are prevalent.. As seen in the figure, a building has the potential to 'wave' back.

  As one of the first books to present such a comprehensive treatment of the topic, Seismic Analysis of Structures is ideal for postgraduates and researchers in Earthquake Engineering, Structural Dynamics, and Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering. Developed for classroom use, the book can also be used for advanced undergraduate students planning. The software, called Seismic Analysis of Woodframe Structures (SAWS) and developed by Folz and Filiatrault (b), has made significant progress in modeling wood buildings (Ellingwood et al., ). ) A computer program for seismic analysis of woodframe structures [CUREE publication] André Filiatrault, Bryan Folz Consortium of Universities for Research in . authored The Design of Wood Structures textbook, and co-authored the Recommendations for Earthquake Resistance in the Design and Construction of Woodframe Buildings, a guideline developed for the CUREE-Caltech Woodframe Project. National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST is a federal technology agency within the U.S. Department.

  The work was a part of the CUREE-Caltech woodframe project. The authors developed also a simplified program (SAWS) for seismic analysis of woodframe structures. The program is composed of rigid diaphragms and zero-height nonlinear spring elements to model the inelastic behavior of . The MasterSeries: Seismic Analysis module allows you to employ various methods of seismic analysis with standard MasterFrame models. This allows you to integrate the seismic analysis and design with the design other elements in your structure, within a single model. Integration with MasterFrame allows the seismic analysis results to be used as part your defined load cases. Advanced Topics in Seismic Analysis and Design of Mid-rise Wood-Frame Structures Chun Ni, FPInnovations Marjan Popovski, FPInnovations Jasmine Wang, Canadian Wood Council Erol Karacabeyli, FPInnovations INTRODUCTION • The National Building Code of Canada raised the limit of wood-frame construction from 4- to 6-storeys (mid-rise). A nonlinear, time-history program, Seismic Analysis Package for Wood-frame Structures, was the analysis platform. Models were analyzed for 10 pairs of biaxial ground motions (spectral.
