A Novel Approach for the Load-Displacement Behavior of Single-Dowel Connections in Laminated Veneer Lumber
2016 (English)In: 17th International Conference on Experimental Mechanics, Rhodes, Greece, July 3-7, 2016, 2016Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
The load-to-grain orientation dependence of the mechanical behavior of single-dowel connections is discussed in this contribution. The effect of the anisotropy of wood was experimentally assessed by means of a novel biaxial test set-up. Thus, lateral reaction forces in addition to forces parallel to the prescribed displacement direction could be quantified. Material properties of the components, namely the steel dowel and the Laminated Veneer Lumber were measured as well. This comprehensive experimental dataset was further exploited in an engineering model for single-dowel connections.
