Under different combinations of horizontal and vertical loads, a total of three quasi-static cyclic tests were conducted to investigate the structural behavior of the Dieh-Dou timber frame. Typical deformation patterns include column rocking, joint rotation around the primary beam-column and column Dou-column regions, vertical shear around the column mortise, embedment around primary beam-column regions, and vertical shearing around the mortise regions of the Dou members. Visible deformation generally began from 1/30 rad onward. The column-restoring force contributed mainly to the frame’s moment resistance when displacement is small. When frame deformation exceeds 1/50 rad, bending moment from the primary beam dominated the global restoring force. Hence, the column-restoring force and the primary beam-column connection generally undertake the primary moment-resisting mechanism while the complex bracket structures above the primary beam play a secondary role. Based on the embedment theory and semi-rigid spring concept, a new theoretical model was developed to estimate the global behavior of the Dieh-Dou main frame. Although the prediction tends to be on the conservative side, the predicted model is generally in good agreement with the observed results.
