Ongoing development of timber and timber products made from European hardwoods like ash and beech influences the selection of acceptable methods for connecting these elements and thus demands validation and application of current design methods for softwood and glulam. For the last 20 years, despite many national and international research projects and(More)
Spregnuti sustavi drvo-beton predstavljaju vrlo dobro tehničko rješenje ne samo u sanacijama nego i u izgradnji novih objekata. Zasad se dimenzioniranje tih sustava provodi γ-postupkom definiranim u Eurokodu 5. Dugoročno ponašanje ovakvih sustava vrlo je kompleksan problem i ovisi o puzanju, bubrenju, skupljanju i temperaturnim promjenama unutar betona,(More)
Beech laminated veneer lumber is a new engineered wood product with superior mechanical properties and high density. In order to take advantage of this superior mechanical performance in the case of connections with glued-in rods a series of pull compression tests with different angles to the grain have been performed applying both polyurethane and epoxy(More)
Timber-concrete composite systems represent a very good technical solution both in reconstruction activities and in construction of new buildings. The design of such systems is currently conducted using the γ procedure defined in Eurocode 5. The long-term behaviour of such composites is a highly complex problem depending on the creep, swelling, shrinkage(More)
