This presentation will provide an overview of the results from a multi-year research project towards seismically resilient tall wood buildings. Specially, the planning, execution, and results will be discussed from the NSF-funded NHERI TallWood Project which aims at developing a resilience-based seismic design methodology for tall wood buildings. In collaboration with many industry partners, the project team tested a full-scale 10-story mass timber building in 2023 in order to validate a tall wood building design that is essentially earthquake proof. This is the world’s tallest full-scale building ever tested on a shake table to date, and survived over 240 earthquake tests without structural damage.
