from X-LAM and Glulam
Cross laminated timber elements or X-LAM elements can be considered as so-called compliantly connected cross-sections. Their load-bearing capacity and stiffness must be determined by considering the shear deformations of the transverse layers, also called rolling shear, and the load position.
Calculation of the load-bearing behaviour
The calculation of the load-bearing behaviour of cross laminated timber elements and X-LAM elements can be carried out with different methods: the so-called shear analogy, the γ-method or the Timoshenko beam theory.
