Abstract
This Chapter focuses on a few fastening systems that reflect present-day practices, some being conventional, while others are proprietary. Given the recent introduction of CLT into the construction market, it is expected that new connection types will be developed over time. Issues associated with connection design specific to CLT assemblies are presented. The European design approach is also presented and the applicability of the National Design Specification (NDS) for Wood Construction design provisions for traditional fasteners in CLT such as bolts, dowels, nails, and wood screws are reviewed and design guidelines are provided. Several design examples are also given at the end to demonstrate how connections in CLT can be established using current NDS design provisions.

Abstract
The work presented in this report is a continuation of the FPInnovations' research project on determining the performance of the CLT as a structural system under lateral loads. As currently there are no standardized methods for determining the resistance of CLT shearwalls under lateral loads, the design approaches...

Abstract
There is a need to demonstrate how novel timber-concrete composite floors can span long distances and be a practical alternative to other traditional structural systems. Better understanding of the fire behaviour of these hybrid systems is essential. To achieve this, the fire-resistance of a timber-concrete composite...
