Abstract [en]

Sheathed light-frame timber shear walls are often used to stabilize timber buildings, protecting them from the effects of wind loads in particular. The analysis models used for such walls often neglects the contact forces between the sheets. In partially anchored shear walls, especially, these contact forces can become significant. In the present study, which only comprises walls without openings, the effect of these contact forces is evaluated for different loading and geometrical conditions using the finite element method. The analyses show that the internal force distribution in the wall is significantly affected by taking the contact forces into account. However, with respect to the load-carrying capacity of the wall, these contact forces have only a slight effect. The main reason for this fact is that the contact forces between the sheets can be replaced by forces transferred via the sheathing-to-framing joints along the top rail and to some extent also by forces transferred via the sheathing-to-framing joints along the upper parts of the vertical studs joining the different sheets
