Abstract
Unlike other solid wood panel systems, ICLT panels are manufactured without the use of adhesives or fasteners. Wood members are connected with tongue-andgroove joints within a given layer and with dovetail joints across layers. This reduces cost and allo...

Abstract
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) was developed in Europe for the prefabricated construction of wall, roof, and flooring elements. Adaption of CLT for use in the United States requires consideration of the different climates, building codes, and construction methods in this country. ... This Chapter provides guidance on hear, air, and moisture control in wall and roof assemblies that utilize CLT panels in U.S. climate zones. The overarching strategies are to prevent wetting of CLT panels by using drained wall systems, to control airflow using an air barrier on the exterior of the CLT panels, to place rigid insulation to the exterior of the panels, to prevent moisture from accumulating within the panels, and to allow the panels to dry should they get wet. In certain climates, preservative treatment of CLT is recommended to provide additional protection against potential hazards such as decay and termites. ...

Abstract
The long-term behavior of adhesive-bonded timber-concrete composites is influenced by climatic changes in temperature and relative humidity because of the different properties of wood, concrete and adhesive. Threedimensional material models, which take into account the hygrothermal and time-dependent behavior, were developed...

Abstract
This project will generate three benchmark data sets for multistory CLT building moisture performance in different climate zones. Data will include moisture contents at key wood components and high moisture risk locations throughout the buildings. A relatively simple, but fully validated, numerical model for analyzing similar building moisture performance will be recommended. These results will be useful for structural engineers and architects to accurately consider moisture in their design of mass timber buildings.
