Abstract
During the past few years, a relatively new technology has emerged in North America and changed the way professionals design and build wood structures: Cross-laminated Timber (CLT). CLT panels are manufactured in width ranging from 600 mm to 3 m. As such...

Abstract
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a promising wood-based structural component and has potential to provide cost-effective building solution for residential, commercial and institutional buildings as well as large industrial facilities. Market acceptance of CLT requires that it meets the applicable building code requirements. CLT elements are used in building systems in similar manner to concrete slabs and solid wall elements, as well as to those from heavy timber construction, by avoiding concealed spaces due to the use of massive timber elements, thus reducing the risk of fire spread beyond its point of origin. Moreover, CLT construction typically uses CLT panels for floor and loadbearing walls, will allow fire-rated compartmentalization, again reducing the risk of fire spread beyond it spoint of origin. ...

Abstract
This project will optimize the strength, stiffness, vibration characteristics, acoustic qualities and fire resistance of cross-laminated floor systems utilizing a composite concrete and cross-laminated timber product. This project includes development, testing and optimization of an economical shear connector (to connect the CLT panel to the concrete slab) that will be compared with existing screw and steel plate solutions. The resulting prototype floor system will be tested at full scale.

Abstract
Small furnace fire tests were conducted on CLT cladded with calcium silicate boards, gypsum boards, and combinations of the two. The difference in fire resistance when using different board types, combinations, and thicknesses was demonstrated. Some cross-sectional configurations had enough 2-hour fire resistance performance...

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...

Abstract
A series of 3 cross-laminated timber (CLT) fire-resistance tests were conducted in accordance with ULC S101 standard as required in the National Building Code of Canada. The first two tests were 3-ply wall assemblies which were 105 mm thick, one unprotected and the other protected with an intumescent coating, FLAMEBLOC® GS 200, on the exposed surface...
