Summary
A series of 3 cross-laminated timber (CLT) fire-resistance tests were conducted in accordance with ULC S101 standard as required in the National Building Code of Canada. The first two tests were 3-ply wall assemblies which were 105 mm thick, one unprotected and the other protected with an intumescent coating, FLAMEBLOC® GS 200, on the exposed surface...

Summary
Um die Systembauweise im Holzbau zu forcieren wird eine Verbindung für Holzflächenelemente entwickelt. Ziel ist es eine Verbindung zu schaffen welche die Arbeiten in Situ minimiert und somit Zeit und Geld spart. Die wesentlichen Anforderungen an das Verbindungsmittel sind deshalb neben der sicheren Lastübertragung, der flächenbündige Einbau im Werk, der Ausgleich von Toleranzen auf der Baustelle und die einfache und flexible Montage. ...

Summary
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is proving to be a promising solution for wood to compete in building sectors where steel and concrete have traditionally predominated. Studies at FPInnovations found that bare CLT floor systems differ from traditional lightweight wood joisted floors with typical mass around 4 lb./ft2 (20 kg/m2) and fundamental natural frequency above 15 Hz, and heavy concrete slab floors with a mass above 40 lb./ft2 (200 kg/m2) and fundamental natural frequency below 8 Hz. Based on FPInnovations' test results, bare CLT floors were found to have mass varying from approximately 6 lb./ft2 (30 kg/m2) to 30 lb./ft2 (150 kg/m2), and a fundamental natural frequency above 9 Hz. Due to these special properties, the existing standard vibration controlled design methods for lightweight and heavy floors may not be applicable for CLT floors. ...

Summary
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a promising wood-based structural component and has potential to provide cost-effective building solution for residential, commercial and institutional buildings as well as large industrial facilities. Market acceptance of CLT requires that it meets the applicable building code requirements. CLT elements are used in building systems in similar manner to concrete slabs and solid wall elements, as well as to those from heavy timber construction, by avoiding concealed spaces due to the use of massive timber elements, thus reducing the risk of fire spread beyond its point of origin. Moreover, CLT construction typically uses CLT panels for floor and loadbearing walls, will allow fire-rated compartmentalization, again reducing the risk of fire spread beyond it spoint of origin. ...
