An experimental and numerical study of moisture flow and moisture-induced strain in fast-grown Sitka spruce
(Departamento de Ingeniería en Maderas de la Universidad del Bio-Bio en Concepción, Chile, 2019)
The use of fast-grown timber in the manufacture of engineered wood products is increasing; however, the fast growth rate results in a low-density timber that is susceptible to significant swelling and shrinkage deformations ...
The influence of panel lay-up on the characteristic bending and rolling shear strength of CLT
The objective of this study was to characterise the behaviour of cross laminated timber (CLT) panels and the influence of the panel lay-up on the failure strength. Three different panel configurations of thickness, 60 ...
The mechano-sorptive creep behaviour of basalt FRP reinforced timber elements in a variable climate
The use of Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) reinforcement has been shown to improve the short-term flexural behaviour of timber elements. This is particularly important when reinforced elements are subjected to a variable ...
Review of state of the art dowel laminated timber members and densified wood materials as sustainable engineered wood products for construction and building applications
Engineered Wood Products (EWPs) are increasingly being used as construction and building materials. However, the predominant use of petroleum-based adhesives in EWPs contributes to the release of toxic gases (e.g. Volatile ...
The elastic and ductile behaviour of CLT wall-floor connections and the influence of fastener length
An investigation was carried out to examine the influence of the fastener length on the elastic and ductile failure behaviour of typical steel-to-timber bracket connections in Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) manufactured from ...
