Article
Full-text available
A framework for the probabilistic finite element model updating based on measured modal data is presented. The described framework is applied to a seven-storey building made of cross-laminated timber panels. The experimental estimates based on the forced vibration test are used in the process of model updating. First, a generalized Polynomial Chaos...

Based on the experimental estimation of the key dynamic properties of a seven-storey building made entirely of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, the finite element (FE) model updating was performed. The dynamic properties were obtained from an input-output full-scale modal testing of the building in operation. The chosen parameters for the FE mo...

Wind-induced dynamic excitation is becoming a governing design action determining size and shape of modern Tall Timber Buildings (TTBs). The wind actions generate dynamic loading, causing discomfort or annoyance for occupants due to the perceived horizontal sway – i.e. vibration serviceability failure. Although some TTBs have been instrumented and...

The project's goal is to quantify the structural damping in as-built tall timber buildings (TTB), identify and quantify the effects of connections and non-structural elements on the stiffness, damping and wind-induced dynamic response of TTBs, develop a bottom-up numerical finite element model for estimating the dynamic response of multi-storey timber buildings, validate the predicted response with in-situ measurements on TTBs and disseminate findings via a TTB Design Guideline for design practitioners. The project is supported under the umbrella of ERA-NET Cofund ForestValue.
