Rational modelling and design in timber engineering applications using fracture mechanics

Serrano, Erik LU (2016) World Conference on Timber Engineering 2016 In 2016 World Conference on Timber Engineering
Abstract
The paper gives a general discussion on methods and theories used for strength analyses of wood and wood-based products. The main aim is to discuss in general terms the benefits gained from using design approaches based on rational and scientifically sound theories. The paper presents mainly fracture mechanics theory but also other advanced modelling techniques and examples from using advanced measurement techniques in testing are briefly
discussed. Examples of applications within the current scope of Eurocode 5 that need to be developed are highlighted (dowel type joints and compression perpendicular to the grain). In addition, examples of applications in need of being included in Eurocode 5 are discussed (beams with holes and... (More)

In addition, examples of applications in need of being included in Eurocode 5 are discussed (beams with holes and glued-in rods). The theories presented in the paper are applied to two different applications, namely notched beams and glued-in rods, the latter currently being a candidate for inclusion in Eurocode 5. (Less)
