The present paper reports on the results of an investigation regarding the determination of the embedding strength of sawn timber of Argentinean Eucalyptus grandis with dowel-type fasteners. The importance of accurately knowing this property has increased with the increasing demand for this material for structural purposes. An empirical research project with 294 specimens prepared for testing under the embedding action of rigid fasteners (nail, bolt and dowel) was carried out according to the… CONTINUE READING
