Cross-Laminated Timber Structural Design
Basic design and engineering principles according to Eurocode
Firstly, the two-dimensional construction product cross-laminated timber (BSP or XLAM) is described with respect to its manufacture and its properties. This is followed by the most important basic design principles, the description of the structural behaviour, and the fire performance with associated modelling assumptions and characteristic material values according to the safety concept of the Eurocodes.
The section on joining technology focuses on self-tapping woodscrews and is supplemented with general design proposals.
The reinforcement of buildings and the earthquake resistance associated therewith conclude the general part. Application examples are to provide easier access to the described contents and stimulate discussion with further engineering models.
