Summary
Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is an innovative engineered wood product being acknowledged and utilized around the world and is pushing the height limitations of mass timber constructions. Shear walls built with cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels are an attractive system to resist seismic load in tall buildings due to their low weight. Given that the seismic performance of these CLT shear walls is largely governed by the connection behaviour, in this report, a critical review of past studies on CLT shear wall systems and the behaviour of their connections, including hold-down, angle brackets and panel joints, is presented.
