Abstract
The development and use of tornado shelters have helped reduce loss of human life associated with extreme weather events. Currently, the majority of shelters are built from either steel or concrete. The development of the crosslaminated timber (CLT) industry in the United States has provided an ideal wood product to resist the debris impact...
