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)
