Abstract

The authors propose the concept of movable energy-dissipation glass wall, which is able to be laid out along wide opening of Japanese traditional wooden house and folded into a door pocket. Firstly, dynamic tests on real size mock-up walls are carried out, and their dynamic characteristics are evaluated. This system is applied to an exsisting traditional house, and the performance of the wall is discussed using the result of vibration tests.
