Abstract: Cross laminated timber (CLT) buildings up to 10 storeys have been constructed in areas of
low seismicity, however few CLT buildings have been constructed in areas of moderate to high
seismicity as there is limited understanding regarding the seismic performance of CLT
buildings and no structural codes for design guidance. Consequently, further research is
required to provide the experimental basis necessary to develop such knowledge. This will
enable CLT to become a competitive construction material for use in mid-rise and high-rise
buildings in seismically active regions. This project examines the behaviour of wall systems
within multi-storey CLT buildings by experimentally testing wall systems representative of
those found within a 10 storey CLT building under monotonic lateral loading. It also aims to
determine the behaviour of typical connections found within multi-storey CLT buildings by
testing these connections under monotonic loading in the shear and tension direction.
