clt wall panel design procedure

Cross-laminated timber construction - an introduction

CLT structures are typically built using a ‘platform frame’ approach, meaning that walls are temporarily braced with raking props if possible, erection commences from a corner or braced lo ion before floor panels are lowered onto them and fixed.

Structural Design of Cross Laminated Timber CLT

CLT panels can be used to contribute to the thermal performance of a structure, with a low thermal conductivity and specific heat capacity, CLT panels can be utilised to reduce the variation in temperature over the daily cycle. This is useful when CLT panels are exposed internally, maximising its benefit.

CLT is produced by stacking layers of timber, known as lamellas, at 90 to the layer below and gluing the lamellas together to create structural timber panels of up to 22m in length and 3.5m in width. Generally members are manufactured 2.4m in width for floor panels or up to 2.95m in width for wall panels, the length of the panels are dependent on site access and logistics.
