This presentation is intended for
designers of building systems seeking to familiarize themselves with the
category of products known as mass timber, including cross laminated timber
(CLT) and nail laminated timber (NLT). Topics will include manufacturing and
product performance standards, structural design standards, and recognition in
the International Building Code. Specific attention will be given to the design
of mass timber in horizontal applications—i.e., as panels of floor and roof
systems—and discussion will include how to address important serviceability
requirements related to deflection and floor vibration design. Example projects
and details will be presented to highlight possible applications of mass timber
in building structures.
