Samenvatting

In recent years timber infill panels have been proposed for multi-story column-beam frame structures with the aim to substitute the stabilizing function of column-beam moment connections. The preliminary study reported in this paper considers a column-beam timber frame where stability is assured by cross-laminated timber (CLT) infill elements. The performance of the system depends on frame-panel connections as well as the dimensions of the CLT panel. The desk research focused on the behaviour of such an assembly using high performance reinforced frame-panel connections comprising steel tube fasteners. The numerical investigation is aimed at optimizing the interaction between frame and infill as a function of CLT panel stiffness in addition to the number and location of the connections. It is shown that the overall lateral stiffness of timber infill frames compares well with concrete infill steel frames
