Determination of seismic performance factors for cross laminated timber shear wall system based on FEMA P695 methodology
Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) was initially introduced in Europe and has recently gained popularity in North America where it is seen as a sustainable alternative to steel and concrete in midrise construction. Although most CLT structures to date have been constructed in low seismic regions, recent tests have indicated that CLT based lateral force resisting systems can successfully be utilized in regions of higher seismicity. Despite the many advantages that CLT offers, the lack of a design code and systematic design procedure is one of many challenges inhibiting widespread adoption of CLT in the ...
