  1. 1. Building extension through additional CLT storeys

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Charalampos Livas; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In the last decade, the use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels as load bearing elements have become a usual solution for buildings and structures with an upward trend internationally. This is because CLT has brilliant physical and mechanical properties and it is also an eco-friendly and renewable material. READ MORE
