This Lunch and Learn resource is by Eric McDonnell and was posted by Sean Facebook, last updated 1 year ago.

KPFF presents advances and research they have been doing on the cross laminated timber front.

This presentation will provide an overview of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) including applicability, design, construction, and lessons learned. KPFF will share our current experience with this material and its use in a variety of building designs

Learning Objectives

At the end of the this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the benefits and limitations of CLT as a structural material in addition to provide information avail-able for designers
  2. Summarize regulatory challenges and current code requirements for the use of CLT particularly in seismic applications
  3. Classify typical gravity and lateral force resisting systems using CLT
  4. Describe the design of the Framework project (12-story CLT) including the resilient/low damage CLT core design
