Paper Title:
Test Research on the Performance of Wood Frame Shear Walls under Lateral Load
  Abstract

Sixteen full-size single-storey shear walls 6.0 m in length and 2.44 m in height were tested: half with a flexible and half with a rigid load spreader. In addition, four full-size shear walls representing a typical two-storey configuration were tested. Comparisons of the initial stiffness, ultimate load and displacement, energy dissipation and axial force in anchor bolts of the test walls are presented. An increase of lateral load capacity due to rigid load spreader beam and from a second storey has been confirmed.
