CLT Horizontal Diaphragm Design Example

This white paper, created in collaboration with the American Wood Council, Structurlam, Martin Pohll Structural Engineering and MyTiCon Timber Connectors, provides a practical design method to determine the strength and stiffness of a cross laminated timber (CLT) horizontal diaphragm under lateral wind or seismic loads. The design approach followed is based in accordance with the engineered design of CLT in the 2015 international building code (IBC), reference standards, and other published information including manufacturer’s literature that is cited in the document.
