The scientific objectives of this project are: (1) To formulate, calibrate, and validate a multi-physics and multiscale computational framework for the simulation of longterm (e.g. creep and shrinkage) and failure behavior (e.g. fracture, delamination, buckling) of CLT and NLT; (2) To obtain experimental data on large-size CLT/NLT structural members subject to varying environmental conditions (e.g.cycling temperature and relative humidity), sustained loads and ultimate load conditions.
