The Seismic Behavior of Cross-Laminated-Timber Composite Slab in High-Rise Building

Xin Yin
Abstract—This paper discusses the seismic performance of Cross-Laminated-Timber (CLT) floor slab in high-rise buildings. Due to its lower ductility and brittle failure mechanisms, CLT shows many advantages that can offer to construction sectors such as CLT walls or floor slabs. Substituting ultra lightweight slab material (CLT) for reinforced concrete floors or roofs can utilize its advantages to strengthen structural capacities. Moreover, the CLT-to-Steel Connection test illustrates that these connection components are sufficiently strong. Besides it can reduce these negative impacts of gravity forces associated with occupied built spaces. Therefore, applying CLT into these tall buildings superstructures where reinforcement concrete frameworks are the primary feasible. In a case study, SAP2000 models (a 24-storey framework) compare variable parameters between Concrete-Steel composite slab and CLT-Steel composite slab during lateral seismic events.

Index Terms—CLT slab, RC slab, seismic behavior, high-rise building, SAP2000.
