The next meeting of the SEAoT San Antonio Chapter will be held on Tuesday, August 23rd, 2022. We will be hosting our Chapter meeting via GoToMeeting. A meeting invite will be sent to registered participants prior to the meeting.
Topic: Mass Timber Structural Design: Engineering Modern Timber Structures
Summary: This presentation will provide a detailed look at the structural design processes associated with a variety of mass timber products, including glued-laminated timber (glulam), cross-laminated timber (CLT), and nail-laminated timber (NLT). Applications for the use of these products in gravity force-resisting systems under modern building codes will be discussed. Other technical topics will include mass timber floor panel vibration criteria, connection options and design considerations, and an introduction to lateral systems common in mass timber buildings. Mass timber framing components are often left exposed to act as a finish while taking advantage of their aesthetics. As such, they are often required to provide a fire-resistance rating demonstrating their ability to maintain structural integrity in the event of a fire. This session will also discuss structural design of mass timber elements under fire conditions.
