Cross laminated timber (CLT) has been rapidly developed and utilized for multi-rise constructions in recent years, even high-rise CLT buildings with 40 stories have been proposed and designed. A use of unbonded post-tensioning (PT) steel bars through over CLT walls of the high-rise CLT buildings to take up the tensile forces produced by wind load has been considered, following the regulations of unbonded post-tensioned (UPT) concrete walls. This paper introduces a finite element model to… CONTINUE READING
