Structural heterogeneities in wood are changing the complexity of the numerical modelling of this material. Knots are the main strength governing parameters, which are changing the uniformity of the stress distributions through the boards. These weak locations may result in failure in the material. Comprehensive reconstruction of the boards,...

Hydraulic timber structures such as mooring poles, fenders, quay walls, lock gates and jetties are widely used in inner and marine harbours all over the world. In general, these structures give satisfactory performance with regard to the technical requirements. Because of the harsh exposure conditions such as brackish and contaminated water,...

There are more than 1000 wood species worldwide available that have the potential to be used in structural applications. Many of these species are tropical hardwood species. In this paper, the mechanical and physical properties of a large number of tropical hardwoods are presented. They are investigated for relationships that are valid for all...

This paper investigates the tensile strength and stiffness of low quality beech sawn timber. In addition, the influences of visual and physical characteristics of the beech boards on the mechanical performance were analysed. Visual characteristics like knots, pith or fibre deviation as well as density and dynamic modulus of elasticity were...

Cracks may indicate structural problems in constructions made of timber beams, but their identification in notably roof constructions is difficult. Therefore this paper presents an algorithm for the automatic detection of cracks in timber beams sampled by LiDAR data. This algorithm enables the identification, analysis and monitoring of cracks...

Ongoing development of timber and timber
products made from European hardwoods like ash and
beech influences the selection of acceptable methods for
connecting these elements and thus demands validation and
application of current design methods for softwood and
glulam. For the last 20 years, despite many national and

Cross-laminated timber, or CLT, is receiving attention for its potential use in tall buildings. As a combustible material, one of the challenges for the construction of these buildings is the fire risk that results from its use in the structure. Unprotected CLT can burn along with the fuel load present in a compartment. Irrespective of its fire...

For the production of lamellas for GLT or CLT visually or machine strength graded timber is required. Visual grading allows only for a limited number of classes while reject rates tend to be high. The present paper shows the potential of an evolutionary algorithm NSGA-II optimizing the boundaries of multiple visual grading criteria in a...

Measuring and assessing wood properties during the production chain is getting more and more important for an optimal use of the resource. Over the years, research has been performed with the focus on establishing important wood properties, with the final goal of an optimized use in timber engineering. It is...

Double-shear steel-to-timber joints of beech laminated veneer lumber (LVL) with slotted-in steel plates using very high strength steel (VHSS) dowels have been investigated. Tensile tests on full-scale joints with one, two, three and six dowels have been carried out, using both VHSS and mild steel dowels. The goal...

The current methods for the determination of the strength properties for wood species for grading purposes require extensive testing. Species independent grading might be a solution for this problem, in particular for tropical hardwoods. The strength reducing characteristics such as knots and slope of grain...

The current shear strength values for high density tropical hardwoods are very low compared to the values for softwoods, according to European strength class tables. The reason for this is that standardized tests according to European standard EN 408 have not been performed yet for tropical hardwoods. In this...

Generally, for structural timber the main properties are listed in a strength class system. In Europe EN 338 (2016) lists available strength class and their respective characteristic properties. Depending on the product application the bending or the tension properties are of main interest. For glulam lamellas, tension classes are preferred as...

Time-of-flight is a time for an ultrasonic pulse to cross a sample. It contains valuable information about the mechanical properties of a material. For the ultrasonic pulse propagating in wood perpendicular to the grain the relation between the time-of-flight and the elastic constants is rather complex due to the strong anisotropicity of wood....

The quality assurance of timber properties is important for the safety of timber structures. In the current study, the quality control options of timber are analysed under the prism of the different growth regions. Therefore, these options - machine and output control - are simulated in accordance with EN 14081, and the performance is assessed...

Structural timber in Europe is either graded visually or by machine. Both grading methods are applied to limit the variation in engineering properties of sawn timber. The obtained grading results are largely dependent on the method chosen. In addition, parameters such as species, source, and cross-section of the timber, as well as the applied...

Cross laminated timber (CLT) has been rapidly developed and utilized for multi-rise constructions in recent years, even high-rise CLT buildings with 40 stories have been proposed and designed. A use of unbonded post-tensioning (PT) steel bars through over CLT walls of the high-rise CLT buildings to take up the tensile forces produced by wind...

In a current research project the gluability of four European timber species and their applicability in glued laminated timber is investigated. The influence of different processing parameters on the adhesive bonding is assessed with regard to shear strength and delamination resistance. Furthermore, microscopy-based investigations revealed...

Wooden mitre gates are used for centuries in waterways and canals. For newly built as well as the renewal of such gates, a number of wood species is used, ranging from oak to dense tropical hardwoods. As mitre gates have high loads to withstand, their strength verification has become more and more important. As strength verification rules for...
