Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) - APA – The Engineered Wood Association
https://www.apawood.org/cross-laminated-timber... [General Information] [Web Page] 2020
APA
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a large-scale, prefabricated, solid engineered wood panel. Lightweight yet very strong, with superior acoustic, fire, seismic, and thermal performance, CLT is also fast and easy to install, generating almost no waste onsite. CLT offers design flexibility and low environmental impacts. For these reasons, cross-laminated timber is proving to be a highly advantageous alternative to conventional materials like concrete, masonry, or steel, especially in multi-family an...

Energy Based Seismic Design of a Multi-Storey Hybrid Building: Timber-Steel Core Walls
https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/ac62/266d732f6e65... [Seismic Performance] [Thesis/Dissertation] 2016
Caleb Goertz
This thesis discusses a novel timber-steel core wall system for use in multi-storey buildings in high seismic regions. This hybrid system combines Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels with steel plates and connections to provide the required strength and ductility to core walled buildings. The system is first derived from first principles and validated in SAP2000. In order to assess the feasibility of the system it is implemented in the design of a 7-storey building based off an already built con...
Dowel-Laminated Timber (DLT) | Wood Strength & Application
https://www.thinkwood.com/products-and-systems/mas... [Alternative/Hybrid Configurations] [Web Page] 2020
Think Wood
Dowel-laminated timber (DLT) is common in Europe and is gaining traction in the U.S. for its ease of use with computer-controlled (CNC) machinery—such as lathes, routers and mills—and its all-wood composition. DLT is similar to nail-laminated timber (NLT). Instead of nails or screws, however, DLT uses wood dowels to join laminations....
Experimental and Numerical Analyses of New Massive Wooden Shear-Wall Systems
https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/ba10/139e9c5b871f... [Mechanical Performance] [Journal Article] 2014
Luca Pozza, Roberto Scotta, Davide Trutalli, Mario Pinna, Andrea Polastri, Paolo Bertoni
Three innovative massive wooden shear-wall systems (Cross-Laminated-Glued Wall, Cross-Laminated-Stapled Wall, Layered Wall with dovetail inserts) were tested and their structural behaviour under seismic action was assessed with numerical simulations. The wall specimens differ mainly in the method used to assemble the layers of timber boards composing them. Quasi-static cyclic loading tests were carried out and then reproduced with a non-linear numerical model calibrated on the test results to es...

SOFIE project – 3D shaking table test on a seven‐storey full‐scale cross‐laminated timber building
https://doi.org/10.1002%2Feqe.2309... [Seismic Performance] [Journal Article] 2013
Ario Ceccotti, Carmen Sandhaas, Minoru Okabe, Motoi Yasumura, Chikahiro Minowa, Naohito Kawai
Multi‐storey buildings made of cross‐laminated timber panels (X‐lam) are becoming a stronger and economically valid alternative in Europe compared with traditional masonry or concrete buildings. During the design process of these multi‐storey buildings, also their earthquake behaviour has to be addressed, especially in seismic‐prone areas such as Italy. However, limited knowledge on the seismic performance is available for this innovative massive timber product. On the basis of extensive testin...
An experimental and numerical study on CLT panels used as infill shear walls for RC buildings retrofit
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/332249324... [Seismic Performance] [Journal Article] 2019
Francesca Stazi, Michele Serpilli, Gianluca Maracchini, A. Pavone
Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) has been gaining more and more attention in research and professional fields as a sustainable and promising construction system for mid- and high-rise structures. The need of buildings higher than those usually built with CLT has pushed the research towards the development of innovative hybrid techniques in which steel framed structures incorporate CLT shear walls. This concept may be potentially extended to existing RC framed buildings, where CLT infill shear walls ...
Influence of orientation and number of layers on the elastic response and failure modes on CLT floors: modeling and parameter studies
https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/10.1007/s001... [Mechanical Performance] [Journal Article] 2016
Lorenzo Franzoni, Arthur Lebée, Florent Lyon, Gilles Forêt
In the present paper, the bending behavior of Cross Laminated Timber panels is investigated by means of the linear elastic exact solution from Pagano (1970, 1969). The resulting stresses are the input for a wood failure criterion, which can point out the first-crack load and the respective dominant failure mode. Heterogeneous layers are modeled as equivalent and homogeneous layers. This simplified and deterministic modeling gives results in good agreement with a reference experimental test. A co...

Ductility Based Force Reduction Factors for Symmetrical Cross-Laminated Timber Structures
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/274959160... [Seismic Performance] [Journal Article] 2015
Marjan Popovski, Shiling Pei, John W. van de Lindt, Erol Karacabeyli
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) as a structural system has not been fully introduced in European or North American building codes. One of the most important issues for designers of CLT structures in earthquake prone regions when equivalent static design procedure is used, are the values for the force modification factors (R-factors) for this structural system. Consequently, the objective of this study was to derive suitable ductility-based force modification factors (Rd-factors) for seismic design ...
Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT)
https://cwc.ca/how-to-build-with-wood/wood-product... [General Information] [Others] 2020
The Canadian Wood Council
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a proprietary engineered wood product that is prefabricated using several layers of kiln-dried lumber, laid flat-wise, and glued together on their wide faces. Panels typically consist of three, five, seven or nine alternating layers of dimension lumber. The alternating directions of the CLT laminations provide it with high dimensional stability. CLT also has a high strength to weight ratio, along with exhibiting advantages for structural, fire, thermal and acousti...

https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/2526/1ee006a00919... [Raw Materials] [Journal Article] 2016
Pedro Gil Girão Dos Santos, Alfredo Manuel Pereira Geraldes Dias, Telmo Filipe Marques Morgado, Carlos Eduardo De Jesus Martins
The present work describes an experimental exploratory study with the aim of production of wooden panels of Pinho bravo (Pinus pinaster) for constructive purposes. The analyzed product was obtained by bonding layers composed of processed wood pieces with rectangular cross section, orthogonally to each other, to produce panels. The product in question is similar to cross laminated timber, but the bond between layers was made in a linear way and not over the entire surface. The modulus of elastici...
Experimental tests on a Hybrid Timber-Frame wall system
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/320057434... [Alternative/Hybrid Configurations] [Journal Article] 2017
Izzi, Matteo; Casagrande, Daniele; Sinito, Ester; Pasetto, Gaia; Polastri, Andrea
This paper presents an innovative lateral load-resisting wall system, which is an evolution of the light-timber frame (LTF) shear walls currently available on the market. In comparison to traditional LTF walls, the novelty aspect is the use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) beams and studs instead of solid timber elements. Thanks to this 'hybrid' approach, this new system combines some peculiar aspects of LTF structures (such as the limited weight and the high dissipative behaviour) with the poten...
