Mass Timber Structural Design: Engineering Modern Timber Structures
This presentation will provide a detailed look at the structural design processes associated with a variety of mass timber products, including glued-laminated timber (glulam), cross-laminated timber (CLT), and nail-laminated timber (NLT). Applications for the use of these products in gravity force-resisting systems under modern building codes will be discussed. Other technical topics will include mass timber floor panel vibration criteria, connection options and design considerations, and an introduction to lateral systems common in mass timber buildings. Mass timber framing components are often left exposed to act as a finish while taking advantage of their aesthetics. As such, they are often required to provide a fire-resistance rating demonstrating their ability to maintain structural integrity in the event of a fire. This session will also discuss structural design of mass timber elements under fire conditions.
1. Compare structural properties and performance characteristics of mass timber products and review their unique design considerations.
2. Review structural design steps for members and connections in common mass timber framing systems.
3. Highlight common connection systems in modern timber structures and resources for associated design values.
4. Demonstrate design steps for calculated fire resistance of exposed structural timber elements.
