• Investigate the viability of internal-perforated steel plates with self-drilling dowels as high-performance connections for CLT lateral load resisting systems to facilitate the development of reliable design guidance.
  • Validate the viability of glued-in rods as high-performance connections in CLT to help develop reliable design guidance for such connections in CLT systems.
  • Measure the sound insulation performance of mass timber floors with full-scale concrete topping on various continuous elastic interlayer materials and on discrete elastic load mounts.
  • Address vibration serviceability design of mass timber floors by extending the CLT floor design method to DLT floors and investigate the effects of concrete topping on the vibration performance of DLT floors.
