Linear members made of cross-laminated timber (CLT)
As a cross-laminated product, CLT has a number of advantages over glued-laminated timber (glulam). In particular the tensile strength perpendicular to the beam axis is considerably higher and therefore CLT has a much lower sensitivity to cracks causing numerous damages to glulam components in the past. The basic idea of this research project is hence to develop linear CLT components like beams able to replace glulam members where large tensile stresses perpendicular to the grain occur, e.g.doi:10.5445/ir/1000030867 fatcat:uxpkzrolwvg47duuhgt4ro5cby
