Summary
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...

Summary
The architectural need for more transparent building envelopes not only changed the appearance of the buildings, but also their structural behaviour. Walls do not only have a vertical load-bearing function any more, they are also used for the transfer of wind and earthquake induced loads. Structural sealant glazing structures have been used for...
