hispaper presents a finite element modeling method for a certain type of nailed jointbetween glulam beams. The joint in question is a traditional arrangement of a horizontal beam anda vertical pillar but herethere is also a nailed steel plate inserted on the two sides in order to strengthen the joint.Experimental results and a comparisonsof simulated and experimental results aremade. The model includes the elastic and plastic orthotropic behaviour of wood and the elastic and plastic behaviour of nails.The nail joint between the steel plate and the wood is modelled as an elastic-plastic surface to surface connection with elastic-plastic properties. Also the reinforcing effect of nails in the nail-affectedvolume of wood is taken into consideration by raising rolling shear yield limitin the affected wood volume.The comparisons showthat the model works well and give results that are comparable to experimental results.
