Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a prefabricated solid engineered wood product made of at least three orthogonally bonded layers of solid-sawn lumber that are laminated by gluing longitudinal and transverse layers with structural adhesives to form a solid panel. Previous studies have shown that the CLT buildings can perform well in seismic loading and are recognized as the essential role of connector performance in structural design, modelling, and analysis of CLT buildings. When CLT is composed… 

Biological Durability of Cross-Laminated Timber— The State of Things

Cross laminated timber (CLT) is a mass timber product that is gaining popularity in construction within North America. CLT is made up of wood, a building material of biological origin. Therefore,

Variations of moisture content in manufacturing CLT-concrete composite slab using wet construction method

Construction of eco-friendly high-rise buildings using cross-laminated timber (CLT)-concrete composite (CCC) slabs is increasing. CLT and concrete, which are major component materials of the CCC

Effect of Wetting and Redrying on Performance of Cross-Laminated Timber Angle Bracket Connection

AbstractCross-laminated timber (CLT) is an engineered wood product offering several advantages for wood utilization in midrise and tall buildings. However, moisture intrusion poses significant risk...

Seismic Vulnerability Assessment of Coupled Wall RC Structures

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology developed a simple method to evaluate seismic vulnerability of reinforced concrete buildings with structural walls using an engineering approach. The objective

Connection Performance of Mass Plywood Panels

Abstract Tall wood buildings have become more prevalent in North America in the past 10 years. Tall wood-frame buildings implement both mass timber construction and products. Mass timber products a...

Vibration Analysis on Three-Axle Truck in Low Speed Induced By Sinusoidal Road Pavement

In this research, for understanding vibration specifications of a multi-degree of freedom 3-axle rigid truck, the ride quality of the truck is investigated. The modeled truck is a Benz 2624 model.

Evaluation of Story Drift under Pushover Analysis in Reinforced Concrete Moment Frames

This paper investigates the validity of pushover analysis to predict story drift under different lateral load patterns using several reinforced concrete moment frames with different heights using pushover and nonlinear time history analyses.

Pervious Concrete: Potential Advantages in Regions with High Precipitation

In regions with high precipitation, the accumulation of surface runoffs in public passages where the restriction of traffic load of vehicles and people would potentially cause lots of problems and

A Method to Characterize Biological Degradation of Mass Timber Connections

Biological durability issues in cross-laminated timber (CLT) have been majorly ignored in North America because of the European origin of the material and careful construction practices in Europe. 

Response Modification Factor for Cold-Formed Steel Structures Using Pushover Analysis

Cold-formed light steel structure systems have recently gained attention by researchers for their unique features such as speed and ease of construction and lightness. The main object of this



A component approach for the hysteretic behaviour of connections in cross‐laminated wooden structures

In this paper, a numerical model to estimate the dissipative capacity and describe the cyclic response of cross‐laminated (X‐lam) timber buildings is presented. The connections between panels and to

Approximate R-Factor for Cross-Laminated Timber Walls in Multistory Buildings

AbstractCross-laminated timber (CLT) is a wood construction technology that has been utilized in Europe for several decades and has become even more popular recently. Although the technology has been
