Abstract
Cross-laminated timber (or CLT) must be recognized as a “precracked” wood composite material where the non-bonded edges within each layer act as cracks in the structure. Furthermore, differential shrinkage between the layers of installed CLT panels subjected to variations in moisture and temperature will result in additional cracks forming parallel to the initial precracks...
