Abstract [en]

This work deals with the bearing capacity of wood based I-joists Finite element models were analyzed to determine the bearing capacity of I-joists, using the finite element software Abaqus CAE. The purpose of this study is to compare the results from the developed FE-models with experimental results, and with a previously proposed design formula. To perform the analyses finite element models were created. The model consists of three parts:, the web (made of shell element), the flanges and steel plates used at the supports and loading points (made of solid elements) To determine the bearing capacity of the I-joist two types of analyses were performed, a linear buckling analysis to check the risk of web buckling and a static (stress) analysis to check the risk of splitting of the flanges. This study shows that the steel plate length, in some cases, has little or no impact on primarily the splitting load. Furthermore, the buckling load decreases as the depth of the beam increases, the influence of the depth being proportional to 1/h2. The depth of the beam has no impact on the risk of splitting of the flange.
