A tenement house, which will be built from wood-frame walls filled with straw bales, was
designed to be seismic resistant on basis of experimental research results of shear strength of a
test panel 230 cm long. Test panel with a window opening and a test panel without an opening
were vertically stressed and horizontal quazistatic load protocol was applied. This load
protocol omogoca... The measured response of the panel was used to determine basic
material characteristics which were applied to the calculation model that was made to... The
analysis was made with the help of computer program SAP 2000, version 8 nonlinear. During
the calculating process instructions of standards EC8 and EC5 were considered.
The assignment ...In my work I also reviewed different methods of building with straw bales,
history of building with straw bales and I described (gradbeno-fizikalne) features of wall
panels with straw bales.
