Product informations

High-performance timber structures require an in-depth knowledge on the deformation behaviour of joints, on which no systematic investigations exist yet. The aim of the project is to significantly increase the data base on connection deformation behaviour through experimental investigations on 172 dowel-type connections in beech laminated veneer lumber (beech LVL) in order to estimate the load deformation behaviour more precisely also for the application of FE modelling. Acquired research results and developed guidelines enable a simplification of the design of even demanding engineering load-bearing structures and result in innovative timber joints.
