Data is reported on damping and dynamic stiffness obtained by testing panels representing typical walls in shear and bending, and connection panels (floors and foundation with or without walls) loaded perpendicular or parallel to the foundation length. The data will be helpful in identifying subsystem degradation in light-frame wood buildings, which is charecterized in this study by linearized data defining damping and stiffness at specified displacement amplitudes, as well as useful in developing degradation models that can be combined with specific test data to estimate nonlinear parameters in future performance modeling of light-frame wood subsystems.
