The updated CLT Handbook Canadian 2nd Edition will be released in early 2020.
This Handbook provides key technical information related to the manufacturing, design and performance of CLT in construction in the following areas:
Cross-laminated timber manufacturing
Structural design of cross-laminated timber elements
Seismic performance of cross-laminated timber buildings
Connections in cross-laminated timber buildings
Duration of load and creep factors for cross-laminated timber panels
Vibration performance of cross-laminated timber floors
Fire performance of cross-laminated timber assemblies
Acoustic performance of cross-laminated timber assemblies
Building enclosure design of cross-laminated timber construction
Environmental performance of cross-laminated timber
Finally, this comprehensive Handbook provides immediate support for the design and construction of CLT systems as alternative solutions in building codes. Additionally, it provides technical information for implementing CLT systems in building codes and standards.
In order to improve the bending strength performance of three-ply laminated wood panels and use them as construction-grade panel materials, twelve types of three-ply cross-laminated wood panels whose percentages of core lamina thickness versus total lamina thickness were 33%, 50%, and 80% were made with sugi (Japanese cedar)...
