Article
Full-text available
The performance of structural timber connections is of utmost importance since they control the global response of the building. A ductile failure mechanism on the global scale is desirable, especially in the design of structures in seismic areas, where dissipative components in which ductile failure modes need to be ensured are considered. Therefo...

Due to their comparable fire characteristics and surface preparation, light-frame timber panels using cement-particle boards (CPB) as a sheathing material present a potential alternative to gypsum-fibre boards. An experimental campaign was conducted to evaluate the behaviour of CPB light-frame-timber panels under in-plane lateral loading. Monotonic...

This paper presents the results of an experimental campaign investigating the seismic behaviour of full-size cross laminated timber (CLT) wall systems with sound-insulated shear-tension angle brackets. The main aim of the study was to investigate the influence of more and less flexible soundproofing bedding under the CLT wall. The paper shows a com...

In-plane lateral tests of timber based shear walls (e.g. light-frame or cross laminated timber walls) are the basis for the derivation of mechanical parameters required for the seismic and wind design (lateral load-bearing and displacement capacity, stiffness, ductility, etc.). The currently available testing standards, such as ISO 21581, do not pr...

In order to improve the fire retardancy of wood the eco-friendly method for in situ formation of CaCO 3 deep inside the wood's structure was proposed by the vacuum-pressure impregnation of only one component – water solution of calcium acetoacetate.

InnoCrossLam is a ForestValue project aimed at increasing the competitiveness of cross laminated timber (CLT) as a versatile engineered product. The project will have impact on: •new, demanding and innovative design situations in CLT structures (beams, openings, point supports, joints, moisture risks, seismic resistance) •proofs of concepts (ther...

The article Experimental investigation of the axial strength of glued-in rods in cross laminated timber, written by Boris Azinović, Erik Serrano, Miha Kramar, Tomaž Pazlar, was originally published online without Open Access.
Conference Paper
Vlepljene palice predstavljajo zanimivo rešitev stikovanja nosilnih lesenih elementov, s številnimi ugodnimi lastnostmi kot so visoka nosilnost, dobra požarna odpornost, prilagodljivost z arhitekturnega vidika, idr. Kljub številnim prednostim, je uporaba vlepljenih palic v praksi relativno omejena. Uporablja se le v posebnih primerih za stikovanje...

This paper presents results from an experimental assessment of glued-in rods in cross laminated timber (CLT). For the purposes of the study more than 60 pull-pull tests were performed, where the specimens varied in terms of bonded-in length (from 80 to 400 mm), rod diameter (16 to 24 mm) and rod-to-grain angle (parallel and perpendicular). Several...
Conference Paper
This paper explores the possibility of using flexible adhesives to dissipate energy in CLT buildings during earthquakes. In the first series of tests, a rod glued in a CLT panel with flexible adhesive was investigated. The connection was tested in pull-pull configuration using cyclic, tension-only loading. Different rod diameters and different thic...
Article
In addition to seismic events, climate changes - which are reflected in extreme events such as heat and cold waves, storms, floods, landslides, mud-slides and avalanches - can cause irreversible damage to cultural heritage. Although predicting the occurrence of natural and human disasters and their perimeter is not trivial, the increasing impact of...
Article
The paper presents a comprehensive study on oriented strand boards (OSB) and gypsum fiber boards (GFB) as sheathing materials for light-frame wall elements. The study is based on the experimental results of the research project, optimization of multistory timber buildings against earthquake impact (OptimberQuake). In the framework of this project,...
Article
Beside seismic activity climate changes, reflecting in extreme events such as heat and cold waves, storms and floods, presents the main natural hazards. Although predicting events perimeter is not trivial, the vulnerabilities of society emphasizing built environment should be at least critically estimated and re-estimated, especially after the occu...

ABSTRACT The Contemporary Theory of Conservation approaches the renovation of cultural heritage structures in terms of preserving the original substance as much as possible, or rather providing the compatibility of old and new materials, when original material is to be replaced with a new one during a renovation intervention. The authors of the art...
Conference Paper
In this paper the results of the experimental and numerical analysis of the long term behaviour of glued laminated timber in a sheltered outdoor environment are presented. The tests on six loaded and five unloaded glulam beams were initiated in the summer of 2003 and finished in autumn of 2006. The temperature, relative humidity, displacements and...
Article
This paper presents some results of national research project titled "Strength grading of structural timber". Project is dealing with the introduction of grading methods for softwood species (spruce, fir) into Slovenian sawmills and with creation of extensive database containing the mechanical characteristics of sawn timber. The main aim of the pro...
Article
The paper presents some experimental results of the long term behaviour of glued laminated timber in sheltered outdoor environment and some new results in numerical modelling of experiment. The tests on six loaded and five unloaded glulam beams were initiated in the summer of 2003 and finished in autumn 2006. The temperature, relative humidity, dis...
Article
An experimental study on the behaviour of glulam beams was performed in order to help us understand the behaviour of glued laminated timber in sheltered outdoor environment. The tests on six loaded and five unloaded glulam beams were initiated in the summer of 2003 and finished in autumn 2006. All relevant quantities (temperature, relative humidity...

Full-text available
The exchange of information between the different organisations and individuals involved in the different stages of a building's life cycle has always been an important, but at the same time a difficult task. A vast number of participants with different views of the same physical structure have to interact and exchange information through the whole...
Article
Today Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) with considerable number of implementations presents almost "de-facto" standard in the Building Information Modelling (BIM). The idea of architecture, engineering, construction and facility management (AEC-FM) software interoperability may be easy understandable but the current standard implementations perfor...
