Mass timber structural framing systems have high strength-to-weight ratios, are dimensionally stable, and are quickly becoming systems of choice for sustainably-minded designers, forward-thinking owners and those pursuing tall wood buildings. This presentation provides a detailed look at the structural design processes associated with a variety of mass timber products, including glued-laminated timber (glulam), cross-laminated timber (CLT), and nail-laminated timber (NLT). Applications for the use of these products in gravity force-resisting systems under modern building codes are discussed. Other technical topics include mass timber floor panel vibration criteria, composite timber-concrete composite slab systems, connection options and design considerations, and detailing and construction best practices. Mass timber framing components are often left exposed to act as a finish while taking advantage of their aesthetics. As such, they are often required to provide a fire-resistance rating while maintaining structural integrity in the event of a fire. This session discusses structural design of mass timber elements under fire conditions.
