    • Experimental characterisation of the moment-rotation behaviour of beam-beam connections using compressed wood fasteners 

      Mehra, Sameer; O'Ceallaigh, Conan; Sotayo, Adeayo; Guan, Zhongwei; Harte, Annette M. (Elsevier, 2021-09-16)
      The widespread use of energy-intensive metallic connectors and synthetic adhesives in modern timber construction has negative implications for the end-of-life disposal or re-use of the structural timber components. Therefore, ...
    • Mechanical properties of compressed wood 

      Namari, Siavash; Drosky, Lukas; Pudlitz, Bianka; Haller, Peer; Sotayo, Adeayo; Bradley, Daniel; Mehra, Sameer; O'Ceallaigh, Conan; Harte, Annette M.; El-Houjeyri, Imane; Oudjene, Marc; Guan, Zhongwei (Elsevier, 2021-08-03)
      Wood is a natural composite material. However, its relatively low mechanical properties restrict the use in advanced structural applications but recent studies have shown that Compressed Wood (CW), with superior mechanical ...
    • Review of state of the art dowel laminated timber members and densified wood materials as sustainable engineered wood products for construction and building applications 

      Sotayo, Adeayo; Bradley, Daniel; Bather, Michael; Sareh, Pooya; Oudjene, Marc; El-houjeyri, Imane; Harte, Annette M.; Mehra, Sameer; O'Ceallaigh, Conan; Haller, Peer; Namari, Siavash; Makradi, Ahmed; Belouettar, Salim; Bouhala, Lyazid; Deneufbourg, François; Guan, Zhongwei (Elsevier, 2019-12-10)
      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 ...
