A numerical study of methods to predict the capacity of multiple steel-timber dowel joints

Sjödin, Johan and Serrano, Erik LU (2008) In European Journal of Wood and Wood Products 66(6). p.447-454
Abstract
<p>In this study, two numerical methods are used to predict the load-bearing capacity of multiple steel-timber dowel joints loaded parallel to the grain. The aim was to show the possibility and the advantages of using numerical methods when designing multiple dowel-type joints.</p><p>The results showed a good correlation to experimental results taken from the literature and to traditional joint calculations as given in Eurocode 5 (2004). The numerical methods are capable of predicting alternative dowel patterns that can be of great value, not only from a structural point of view, but also for aesthetical reasons. In addition, the numerical methods presented in this study can also be efficient tools for the structural... (More)
