If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Maria Marques de Carvalho.

Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is increasingly being used in the built environment for multiple reasons including economy, constructability, sustainability and architectural merit. Recent interest from industry in CLT deep beams with openings has highlighted the lack of knowledge and design guidance on the in-plane properties of CLT . This project aims to contribute valuable information by assessing the applicability of the most common reinforced concrete deep beam design method, the strut-and-tie method, for CLT deep beams with openings. This talk will introduce CLT deep beams, their challenges and how this project aims to fill in the knowledge gap on CLT deep beam design.
