• An elastoplastic solution for earthquake resistant rigid timber shear walls 

      Loo, Wei; Quenneville, P.; Chouw, N. (2014-09)
      In terms of seismic performance, timber structures have been observed to perform well, in spite of timber being an inherently non-ductile material. This is due mainly to the ductility of the steel-to-timber connections, ...
    • A new shear key for rocking timber shear walls 

      Loo, Wei Yuen; Kun, Chern; Quenneville, Pierre; Chouw, Nawawi (Australian Earthquake Engineering Society (AEES), 2013)
      Allowing shear walls to rock is one way of protecting structures from earthquake damage, or at least minimising this damage. Walls allowed to rock must have the ability to resist both overturning moment, and lateral forces. ...
