WG 2 : Solid / Massive Timber

The most important task within this Working Group 2 (Solid/Massive Timber) is the derivation of universal product parameters and design approaches for cross-laminated timber by harmonizing the current status. So far, crosslaminated timber (CLT) is only regulated in European Technical Approvals, in other words, only specific configurations by specific manufacturers are applicable in buildings. As the development of common product requirements is already at an advanced stage and the process of harmonization of the thickness of the base material is ongoing, the focus of this Working Group will be associated with the following aspects:

  • Testing: the development and implementation of valid test configurations to receive the basic material properties, e.g. to derive strength classes;
  • Design: methods to verify the compliance of CLT elements with the essential requirements: mechanical resistance, stability and serviceability.
