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. ...
