Abstract

This paper presents experimental studies of a typical external wall-to-floor-to-wall connection in a cross laminated timber (CLT) platform type construction in context of disproportionate collapse resistance. The studied connection mimics the finite element models developed by other authors in the international timber robustness research community. The assembled specimens were tested with aim of staying in the linear elastic range and understand how the rate of loading affects CLT and its connections. This study presents data of the observed behaviour of CLT, steel brackets and screws subjected to different rates of loading. Obtained results and observations will inform future testing programmes and experimental analyses whereby aim is to test the specimens beyond the linear elastic range and to failure.
