Conference Paper
Typically, to improve the fire resistance of wood, chemical substances, including phosphorus, borate, phenols, nitrogen and halogen based compounds, are impregnated into the wooden material. However, due to problems related to the toxic properties of these fire-retardant compounds, new fire-retardancy methods based on a mineralization process have...

Beech laminated veneer lumber (LVL) circular hollow sections for use as nails in temporary geotechnical soil nailing systems were developed within this research. For the soil wall stability, beside a sufficient load carrying capacity of the nail cross section, a load carrying connection between the cement annulus and the nail is necessary. As cemen...

This paper investigates the strength properties of circular laminated veneer lumber hollow sections made of beech wood and loaded in tension. These tubular, hollow wooden poles are intended for an innovative geotechnical approach, which utilizes the high tensile strength of beech wood and its limited durability as soil nails for temporary geotechni...
Conference Paper
The use of wood in geotechnical applications has seen renewed interest. However, concerns related to the durability and service life of wood in ground contact applications remain. Wood has the potential to substitute commonly used steel and concrete in the geotechnical engineering sector, but solutions to extending the service life and maintenance...

This paper investigates the long-term tensile properties of laminated veneer lumber (LVL) beech sections coated with cement and exposed to fungal decay. A set of LVL coupon (dog-bone) samples was stored in compost, tested in tension after 6 and 12 months and compared to reference samples stored at 20 °C and 65% relative humidity. Results showed tha...

Full-text available
Circular hollow sections of beech-laminated veneer lumber (LVL) for the use as temporary geotechnical soil nailing systems are currently being developed. Due to their permanent subsoil cement embedment, investigations of the bond line quality of the timber sections are essential. This paper presents the bonding properties of flat and curved beech L...
Article
Full-text available
Innovative circular, hollow, laminated veneer lumber (LVL) beech sections for use as temporary geotechnical soil reinforcement members are currently being developed. Appropriate surface gluing quality between the veneers is fundamental to this subsoil application of the permanently cement-embedded, engineered timber product. The circular cross-sect...
Article
Innovative beech laminated veneer lumber (LVL) circular hollow sections for the use as temporary geotechnical soil nailing systems are currently being developed. Due to the permanent subsoil cement embedment, combined with high water saturation and permanent loading, the timber sections will lose strength and stiffness over time to a degree current...
Article
Durch das Einlegen elastischer Zwischenschichten zur schalltechnischen Entkopplung werden die zum Verbinden einzelner Holzbauteile verwendeten Schrauben, neben Abscheren und Herausziehen zusätzlich auf Biegung beansprucht. Dabei kommt es zu einer erhöhten Nachgiebigkeit zwischen den Stoßfugen der einzelnen Bauteile. Die Gleichungen im Eurocode 5 zu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Within a current research project at Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences and Graz University of Technology the possibilities of using beech wood laminated veneer lumber poles as soil anchors for temporary soil nailing systems are investigated. Therefore tensile and bending properties of laminated veneers with high moisture and permanent cement...
Poster
Full-text available
Currently in foundation engineering a common way of slope stabilisation is the use of grouted steel anchors drilled into the soil in combination with a reinforced shotcrete layer for surface protection- the so called “soil nailing system”. The connection between soil and anchor (steel rod) is ensured by filling the gap between soil and anchor with...

Project
Within the scope of CEMWOGEO the interaction of cement and wood will be investigated with a focus on the durability increasing effect of cement coating on wood. Joint-research project between Georg-August-Univerität Göttingen, Technische Universität München, Technische Hochschule Rosenheim, Graz University of Technology and University of Innsbruck.
Project
With the actual research project the possibility of substituting the temporary steel anchors with LVL-poles manufactured from beechwood is investigated. The reason behind this idea is to find a sustainable way of soil nailing for temporary purposes in combination with an new way of using beechwood.
