This study focuses on the vibrational behaviour of 3, 5 and 7-layer cross-laminated timber (CLT) plates supported on two sides with different support conditions. Three end support setups are proposed; 1) top load over the two supported edges, 2) direct fastening to support using self-tapping screws, 3) steel angle bracket support. The measured response parameters are natural frequencies, damping, and static deflection under a point load. The rotational stiffness with load, screws and steel… Expand
Development of Rotational Fixity Factors for Vibration Design of Cross-Laminated Timber Floors
As an emerging building solution, cross-laminated timber (CLT) floors have been increasingly used in mass timber construction. The current vibration design of CLT floors is conservative due to theExpand
Fee vibration of CLT plates
This article discusses the ability of different methods to predict the natural frequencies of vibration for a cross laminated timber (CLT) plate. The prediction models considered are the methodExpand
INNOVATION IN THE DESI N OF CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER FOR LON SPAN FLOORS
Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) construction is now considered a viable and sustainable alternative to traditional building techniques within the multi-storey building sector. This is primarily due toExpand
Vibration Serviceability of Cold-Formed Steel Floor Systems
Excessive vibration in response to human activities has been a significant problem associated with lightweight steel floor systems, especially cold-formed steel (CFS) floors. Methods for accuratelyExpand

Influence of rotatory inertia, shear deformation and support condition on natural frequencies of wooden beams
The degree of influence of rotatory inertia and shear deformation on natural frequency determinations is discussed. It is found that for material such as wood, which has a relatively high ratio ofExpand
The continuum of connection rigidity in timber structures
The use of timber in rigid frames has been hampered by the debate surrounding the rigidity of the moment connections. Joint stiffness is a function of beam flexural stiffness, as well as of theExpand
