In this paper a model is presented able to describe the splitting strength of beams subjected to tension forces perpendicular to the grain by connections. Based on fracture mechanic principles the model is basically independent of the type of fastener but validated here for connections with dowel-type fasteners. Taking test data from a limited number of sources the model is calibrated. The influence of the connection type is demonstrated and a code design proposal for Eurocode 5 is presented.
