Experimental Assessment of the Load Distribution in Multi-Dowel Timber Connections
2016 (English)In: 17th International Conference on Experimental Mechanics, Rhodes, Greece, July 3-7, 2016, 2016Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
An integrative, hierarchically organized testing procedure for the quantification of the load distribution in multi-dowel timber connections is presented herein. The use of contactless deformation measurement systems allowed the combination of test data from single dowel and multi-dowel connections, which gave access to the loads acting on each dowel over the full loading history. As a consequence of the anisotropic material behavior of wood, a nonuniform and progressively changing load distribution among the dowels was found.
