Abstract
This paper proposes a folded-plate type integrated wall made of small pieces of timber. This paper focuses on improvements in initial stiffness and appearance of toughness behavior with initial tensile force in this structure. In addition, the authors observed that this structure was responsive to structural response control elements due to energy absorption.
