In Sweden there has recently been a change in the code from the former BFS2010:2 BKR 13 to Eurocode 5. This shift has led to changes when calculating the design capacity for all materials including wood. One of the parameters that were changed was the strength of wood perpendicular to the grain. The characteristic value required was decreased from 8 MPa to 2.7 MPa which have a relativity large impact on the size of the contact area, for instance between a beam and a support. A consequence of… CONTINUE READING
