Modeling Cross-Laminated Timber Structures 4
Tips & Tricks
The support of the cross‑laminated timber plate deserves a closer look. Usually, a cross‑laminated wall is secured against shearing by means of shear connectors and against lifting forces by means of tie rods.
Such a consideration of the according nonlinearities in the program might soon become very complex. It is, however, possible to consider such a support in accordance with the nonlinearities, as shown in the picture.
In my next post, I will explain the slip of the shear connectors shown in the picture.
