In Timber Engineering Notebook (TEN) No. 21, the engineered wood product known as cross-laminated timber (CLT) was introduced. This latest article in the TEN series provides a more detailed introduction to the applications and use of CLT as a structural timber product, including structural benefits and benefits to the construction process.
The first in a new series of articles; written by Chartered structural engineers Milner Associates, on behalf of the UK Timber Frame Association (UKTFA) providing technical information on the use of timber as a structural medium.
This Timber Engineering Notebook introduces the checks for overall building stability and those required for the wall diaphragms which provide shear (or racking) resistance to a platform timber frame structure.
