Abstract
<p>Adhesive joints have been known andapplied for timber structures for decades. Hybridjoints with glued-in rods are nowadays successfullyused for both constructing new and strengtheningexisting timber structures. Since the 1980s theresearch and development of timber joints withbonded-in rods have been going on, however agreementregarding design criteria for these connectionshas not been reached. Today, connections with gluedinrods are not included in the European design code.Thus, it is desired to gather the current state ofknowledge to enable application in practice of theexisting and documented knowledge and experience.This paper summarizes practical and theoreticalapproaches from research done regarding joints withglued-in steel...
