Innovative Connections for CLT Buildings

This project will develop innovative new connections for CLT buildings in seismic zones. 

Keywords: behaviour factor, cross laminated timber (CLT), dissipative capacity, dissipative connections, multi-story buildings, seismic response

Objectives:

  • Critical evaluation of the performance of CLT building during earthquakes
  • Investigation of amplified accelerations in multi-storey buildings
  • Development of dissipative connections for CLT buildings
  • Suggest the implementation of the existing connections
  • Probabilistic assessment of seismic force reduction factors
  • Development of design procedures
