Glued Connections in Timber Structures
Kapitel i bok, 2019

As a naturally grown material, the dimensions of structural timber exhibit certain limitations. In order also to use timber for larger structures and wider spans, different techniques have been developed to overcome these limitations. The development of adhesive offered new possibilities for timber structures.

In this contribution, the structural behavior of glued connections is introduced briefly. Different types of glued connections currently used in practice are summarized and discussed. Their potential with respect to future applications will be evaluated and new and innovative solutions will be presented. The contribution is limited to structural adhesive joints used to transfer loads in a defined area usually between two members.
