Abstract
To assure the appropriate use of wood in large residential and non-residential buildings, it is necessary to carry out a comprehensive study of the resistance provided by these wood structures to lateral loads due to wind and earthquakes. Given that this is a topic of international interest, and there is a strong movement towards worldwide harmonisation of codes and standards, the proposed work requires the cooperation of a number of specialists in Canada and abroad. As a first step in creating a coordinated program of research, a consultation on the seismic resistance of timber structures has been carried out. A group of six seismic experts from Japan, New Zealand, USA, Germany, Italy and Greece were brought together in Vancouver, B.C. for two days in May, 1993. This consultation was joined by six Canadian experts on seismic analysis and timber engineering research. Following this meeting, a five-year research program on the lateral resistance of engineered wood structures to seismic and wind loads was launched. The objective of the program is to provide designers and code writers with the test data and analytical tools needed to design large timber buildings for wind and earthquake forces. The program includes wood-framed and sheathed walls and diaphragms, braced timber structures, structural wood frames and arches. In the first year of the program, in cooperation with Dr. M. Yasumura, a visiting scientist from the Building Research Institute, Tsukuba, Japan, and Mr. D. Kishi, a structural engineering consultant from British Columbia, a total of 21 16' x 8' (4.8 m by 2.4 m) wood shear walls have been tested at Forintek under static and reversed cyclic loading. In these walls, three types of sheathing material (plywood, Oriented Strand Board, and Gypsum Wall Board (GWB) were used to investigate the effects of sheathing position (vertical or horizontal), blocking, nail spacing, and taping (in the case of GWB). The structural behaviour of elements such as shear walls is dependent on the behaviour of individual connections. Research alliances are currently being formed with the University of New Brunswick and the University of British Columbia for the development of test data and analytical models on the behaviour of connections.

Abstract
The progress in the second year of the 5 year research program entitled "Lateral Resistance of Engineered Wood Structures to Seismic Loads" is presented. Because of the international scope of the problem, the work is being carried out in cooperation with scientists from several universities and research institutes. A procedure for determining force modification factors for timber structures is presented using the experimental data collected on nailed shear walls.

Abstract
Tests were carried out to determine the resistance of lumber bolted to concrete and subjected to ramp loading in the longitudinal direction of the wood. Specimens were made from Hem-Fir and from SPF lumber. Anchor bolt sizes studied were nominal 1/2 in. and 3/4 in. in diameter. Both lumber and anchor bolts were representative of material usually used in the construction of low-rise timber structures. It was found that the minimum strength of a connection with a single bolt exceeds the characteristic strength used by current design procedures in CSA O86.1 by a factor of 1.6 for 1/2 in. diameter bolts and a factor of 2.0 for 3/4 in. diameter bolts. Reasons for this underestimate of the strength of bolted wood-to-concrete connections are attributed to (a) a low estimate of the calculated embedment strength of bolts in wood, (b) a low estimate of the embedment strength of bolts in concrete, (c) bolt yield strength 14 to 37 percent higher than that specified in CSA O86.1, and (d) lack of a model for the strength of bolted connections which accounts for the anchorage of wood provided by washers, and friction between the concrete and the wood member. Some changes in the current design method which would improve the ability of this procedure to predict the strength of bolted wood-to-concrete connections are recommended.

Abstract
The MIDPLY™ Shearwall System has been developed by Forintek. The system is designed to provide superior resistance to earthquake and wind loads. The improved performance is achieved by rearrangement of wall framing components and sheathing used in standard shear walls. Possible applications of the system are a) platform-frame construction where additional lateral load capacity is needed (e.g., narrow shear walls next to garage and large window openings); b) post and beam construction (e.g., as an insert between posts and beams); c) seismic upgrading of existing structures; and d) manufactured housing systems directed at areas with high risk of earthquakes and hurricanes. The proof-of-concept for the MIDPLY™ wall system design and construction method was established through testing and analysis of full-scale test specimens subjected to monotonic (ramp), cyclic and dynamic displacement schedules. A commercialisation plan was developed and distributed to project collaborators. The MIDPLY™ wall system is currently being considered by a large Canadian construction company in the design of several multi-storey wood-frame buildings.
