Simplified hysteretic finite-element model for wood and viscoelastic polymer connections for the dynamic analysis of shear walls

This paper presents a simplified methodology of modeling the complex hysteretic behaviors of wood sheathing connections using basic elements found in commercially available finite-element analysis software. By combining these basic elements, customized connection elements that often require extensiv...
