Mass timber structural framing systems have high strength-to-weight ratios, are dimensionally stable, and are quickly becoming systems of choice for sustainably-minded designers. This presentation will provide a detailed look at the structural design processes associated with a variety of mass timber products, including glulam, CLT, and 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 use of mass timber panels as two-way spanning slabs, connection options and design considerations, and detailing and construction best practices.
