Cross Laminated Timber CLT Design

The Cross Laminated Timber CLT Design module in FEM-Design enables you to perform stress analysis and dimensioning of CLT elements according to Eurocode 5. CLT elements are easy to model using ready-made CLT types or custom CLT elements set layer by layer, calculating with laminated shell theory.

In CLT definition, the transverse tensile strength of the layers, gluing from the long side of the timber, can also be considered. During the structural modelling of the element structure, you can use joint stiffness, model shell panels as one continuous region or made up of panel members.

What do customers say about CLT-Design?

“The ability to model and check two way-spanning CLT panels, with any build-up, is very powerful. That means we are not limited to simple one-way spanning panels checked as beams. The software also allows us to check such designs as, for instance, panels with penetrations, notches, and covered geometries, which offers a lot of flexibility”.
