Design approaches for CLT connections

Mohammad, Mohammad; Blass, Hans; Salenikovich, Alexander; Ringhofer, Andreas; Line, Philip; Rammer, Douglas; Smith, Tobias; Li, Minghao

Various design approaches for establishing the resistance of connections in cross-laminated timber (CLT) structures have been developed and adopted in timber design standards worldwide. Although the fundamental principles are similar, the new design provisions for CLT connections have been aligned in some standards with the existing design philosophy and format adopted for sawn timber and glulam using traditional fasteners such as dowels, nails, and wood screws for consistency and simplicity, in the other standards, alternate approaches have been developed. This article presents a snap shot of the various design approaches for connections in CLT adopted in Europe, Canada, the United States, and New Zealand. The intent is for the reader to have a better knowledge of the underpinning assumptions, principles, and the adopted design rules in each of these standards.
