Delamination resistance and tensile shear strength (TSS) are essential for load-bearing timber structures. Thus these two factors were investigated on industrially bonded ash wood (Fraxinus excelsior L.) to check for the suitability of adhesively bonded ash wood as a building material. Two melamine urea formaldehyde (MUF) resins, two polyurethanes (PUR),(More)
In a combined experimental, numerical, and analytical approach, damage onset and propagation in unidirectional and cross-laminated samples from European beech due to climatic changes are studied. The inter- and intra-laminar damage evolution is characterized for various configurations, adhesively bonded by three structural adhesive systems. Different(More)
Structural elements made of laminated hardwood are increasingly used in timber engineering. In this combined numerical and experimental approach, damage onset and propagation in uni‐directional and cross‐laminated samples out of European beech due to climatic changes are studied. The inter‐ and intra‐laminar damage evolution is characterized for various(More)
A 16 year old lebanese girl with consanguinous parents presented with a severe " abdominal " sepsis supposedly resulting from an infected vaginal tampon (ESBL E.coli). She had been healthy before. She developed severe hepa-tic functional disorder, infarction of the spleen, cardio-vascular and renal insufficiency, as well as anemia and thrombocytopenia.(More)
