Performance Confirmation Test for Timber Column-Ground Sill Joints Reinforced with Aramid Fiber Sheets

High-performance aramid fiber sheets are a new class of composite materials composed of weaved polyamide fibers. This seismic performance and failure behavior of the timber columnโ"ground sill joints reinforced with the aramid fiber sheets were investigated. We conducted bending tests under cyclic loading for three columnโ"ground sill specimens. The maximum bending moments were estimated using a simple method and compared with the experimentally obtained moments. After reinforcement with the aramid fiber sheets, the joint strength...
