Abstract

In spite of the wide use of hardwood(ZWfa>va serrata) for the load-bearing members of large traditional buildings such as main buildings of temples (see Fig.l) and castles in Japan for centuries, little effort has been made for the promotion of the engineering design of its seismic and fire protection performance. The stagnant engineering development in the hardwood construction has caused significant difficulty in its use during the recent strengthening of the building regulation in Japan.
