Abstract
A crucial aspect of fully realising the potential of cross-laminated-timber (CLT) as a structural material is ability to interconnect it to similar and dissimilar materials. This paper primarily reports in-plane shear tests on half-lapped and single-spli...

Abstract
The seismic behaviour of timber buildings is strongly related to the energy dissipation capacity of connections. According to Standard, since timber is characterized by a brittle failure when subjected to tensile or bending actions, the dissipative zones shall be located in joints and connections, whereas timber members themselves...

Abstract
Cross-Laminated-Timber (CLT) is increasingly gaining popularity in residential and non-residential applications in North America. To use CLT as lateral load resisting system, individual panels need to be connected. In order to provide in-plane shear conn...

Abstract
The challenge with point-supported flat slabs is the stress concentration at the supporting points. The small strength of the wood perpendicular to the grain should not reduce the load carrying capacity of the CLT –Panels. Therefore, there are some existing state of the art methods of reinforcement with self-tapping screws, which open up the...
