Large-diameter single dowel joint : finite element modelling of a reinforced joint

Avez, Coralie; Lefèvre, C.; Crocetti, R. LU and Descamps, Thierry (2017) In International Wood Products Journal2010-01-01+01:00 p.1-7
Abstract

Finding new efficient connectors or improving existing ones are important issues in timber construction. This research investigates an innovative large-diameter dowel-type connection by using a finite elements model calibrated with experimental results. This connection is made of a large-diameter single dowel reinforced by means of a steel plate with a vulcanised rubber layer. The steel plate shape, thickness and dimensions, the rubber stiffness, the steel mechanical properties, etc., are parameters that may influence the critical load of the plate. The joint load-bearing capacity is also highly depending on the load direction to the grain. Those parameters are investigated using FE modelling and discussed in order to propose design... (More)
