This poster describes a project that studied the response of a 12-storey cross laminated timber (CLT) structure designed by TRADA.

This consisted of a series of nonlinear dynamic analyses on the sub-assemblage models.

Research funded by: 2017/18 MSc Research Grant

Summary:

Main floor interior wall removal:
Parametric studies were conducted on the wall and slab thicknesses for both models, used to simulate the effects of increasing the respective structural element stiffness.

Main floor exterior wall removal:
Parametric studies were conducted on the wall and slab thicknesses. It was found that the wall thicknesses did not contribute to reducing the vertical displacement. 

Deep beam action - senstivity and effectiveness:
The contribution of deep beam actions from the perimeter wall were studied. This was done by including perimeter walls with a thickness of 125mm.
