Abstract
For wood floor systems, their vibration performance is significantly dependent on the conditions of their supports, specifically the rigidity of the support. Detrimental effects could result if the floor supports do not have sufficient rigidity. This is special ture for floor supporting beams. The problem of vibrating floor due to flexible...

Abstract
The latest developments in seismic design philosophy have been geared towards developing of so called "resilient" or "low damage" innovative structural systems that can reduce damage to the structure while offering the same or higher levels of safety to occupants. One such innovative structural system is the Pres-Lam system that is a wood-hybrid system that utilizes post-tensioned (PT) mass timber components in both rigid-frame and wall-based buildings along with various types of energy disspators. To help implement the Pres-Lam system in Canada and the US, information about the system performance made with North American engineered wood products is needed. That information can later be used to develop design guidelines for the designers for wider acceptance of the system by the design community. ...

Abstract
Building using cross-laminated timber (CLT) began in Europe about two decades ago and has used a variety of methods for structural analysis. Experimental testing methods were the most accurate, yet they lacked versatility because changes in lay-up, material, or even manufacturing methods could cause a need for new testing. Consequently, three analytical approaches have been created and are commonly used in Europe as none have been universally accepted to date. ... In the United States and Canada, the product standard (Standard for Performance-Rated Cross-Laminated Timber - ANSI/APA PRG 320) has adopted the Shear Analogy method to derive composite bending and shear stiffness properties.

Abstract
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) products are used as load-carrying slab and wall elements in structural systems, thus load duration and creep behavior are critical characteristics that must be addressed in structural design. Given its lay-up construction with orthogonal arrangement of layers bonded with structural adhesive, CLT is more prone to time-dependent deformations under load (creep) than other engineered wood products such as structural glued-laminated timber. Time dependent behavior of structural wood products is addressed in design standards by load duration factors that adjust design properties. Since CLT has been recently introduced into the North American market, the current design standards and building codes do not specify load duration and creep adjustment factors for CLT. Until this can be rectified, an approach is proposed in this Chapter for adopter of CLT systems in the United States. This includes not only load duration and service factors, but also an approach to accounting for creep in CLT structural elements.
