Seismic Performance of Cross-Laminated Timber Buildings
Snapshot: Cross-laminated timber (CLT) buildings are becoming popular in earthquake regions of the United States, but structural engineers need new design methods. Forest Service research is striving to develop methods to design CLT buildings to six stories and beyond that will withstand earthquakes.
