Since the 80’s, Johanssen’s Yield Theory has been adapted to fit new design practices: fastening of timber elements with a layer of insulation (or gap) between the elements or fastening with inclined fasteners. However no rules exist for connections with large gaps (up to 500 mm) and inclined fasteners. The behaviour of screwed connections (timber/large(More)
In this study, the stress distribution and stress concentration factor (SCF) of a generic notched wood piece and ASTM D 143:14 notched shear block specimen were analysed. A 2D plane stress finite element model with linear elastic behaviour was assumed for the bulk material and a predefined potential crack path and cohesive behaviour of the crack surfaces(More)
