Summary
: A computer aided numerical model for the simulation of the in-plane bending strength of CLT beams is presented. The model uses the Monte-Carlo-Method to generate mechanical characteristics of board lamellae and is suitable for the investigation of statistical effects such as homogenisation and size effects. Six different types of CLT beams, varying in size and in layup, were tested to validate the model and except for beams with only one lamella in direction of the beam height good agreement was found between the experimental results and the model’s simulations.
