Influence of parameters affecting the racking strength of partially anchored timber framed walls

  A test-based assessment of the racking performance of partially anchored timber framed walls is described in this paper. The tested wall specimens were constructed and tested at the Centre for Timber Engineering (Edinburgh Napier University, UK) considering different configurations of the wall geometry, such as wall length, nail spacing and size and position of studs under different vertical loading arrangements. Based on the experimental results, comparisons are made with the design-based strength values obtained according to relevant European and UK national standards, and are discussed in this paper.
