Cross-laminated timber (CLT) – a state of the art report

Mario Jeleč, Damir Varevac, Vlatka Rajčić

Abstract

Cross laminated timber is an innovative plate-shaped product presenting a laminated structure and excellent physicomechanical properties. Due to its high stiffness and in-plane and out-of-plane bearing capacity, it is most often used in form of wall or floor panels. Favourable environmental, aesthetic and energy properties further enhance its qualities. The paper is a summary of CLT research conducted so far, with an emphasis on the need to harmonise existing regulations and include this product in the European standard for timber structures Eurocode 5.

Keywords
cross laminated timber, CLT, composite material, material properties, carrying capacity analysis, Eurocode 5
