Practice Periodical on Structural Design and Construction
Abstract
With a growing interest in using timber as a structural material for tall buildings in response to trends in sustainable design, several timber buildings between 7 and 10 stories have been built in Europe and Australia. However, in the United States, timber buildings are still limited to 6 or fewer stories...

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.
