CLT Design Approach and Test Results
Research Questions
Q1: Code assumption
What extent of neglecting the cross layers contributions is valid up to?

Q2: Cross-layers contributions
How shear deformation and rolling shear modulus can control the stability behaviour?

Q3: Number of CLT layers
What would be the size and stress distribution eects on the CLT wall stability?

Q4: Nonlinearity and uncertainty
How to incorporate large deformations and randomness associated with members and loads?

Sought out distribution from the Experimental study
A 5-layers CLT column strip having two different configurations, namely, weak and strong resistance, will be testing to examine the different cross-section layups influence on the stability behaviour.
S=Fisher-Tippett extreme value distributions

Stress volume inclusion
Evaluate short column behaviour and predict its short term strength to include the contribution of the cross plies with consideration of the glue and gap.
Measure the effects of material and construction uncertainty on the CLT stability behaviour under a random load.
Experimental Study
Proposed Test Matrix
Expected Results
Develop the CLT wall system test data subjected to in-plane gravity loading for the purpose of numerical model validation.
Displacement interpolation: Strong form
Displacement Formulation
Force Formulation
The results approach the true solution as the number of elements increases.
More computationally efficient, but at the cost of lower accuracy.
The accuracy is significantly improved by increasing the number of integration points.
The numerical study will be employed to examine the impact of cross-layers effects on the CLT wall stability considering parameters, such as, number of layers and gap.

Finally the reliability analysis will be accomplished with consideration of the sources of uncertainty lie upon the production, construction, material and loading conditions.
