STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OF CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER UNDER ELEVATED TEMPERATURE DUE TO FIRE
At the time of this thesis work, one of the fastest growing materials in timber construction is Cross Laminated Timber (CLT). This building material has many appeals, from sustainability of production to visual aesthetics, and offers a multitude of benefits in design and construction. However, there are still areas of the design that need more research in order to better understand CLT as an engineered wood structural material in order to design safer as well as boost public trust of the material. In particular, the material behavior at elevated temperatures due to fire has a limited amount ...
