Summary
The two-way action of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is often ignored in the design of CLT due to its complexity. But in some cases, for example, large span timber floor/roof, the benefit of taking the two-way action into account may be considerable since it is often deflection controlled in the design...

Resumption of Lateral Loads in a Massive Structure Assembled by Glued Rods

Summary
Assemblies by glued rods allow architectural freedom. They are in fact invisible since they are found in the mass of the structural element. Some studies have started to document this type of assembly by considering static single-rod traction tests and single-rod creep tests (Verdet, 2016). In order to continue this effort to specify the limits of this type of assembly, it is proposed to consider the lateral forces for single-rod assemblies but especially multi-rods. The objective of this project will therefore be to document the capacity of these assemblies to take up lateral loads.

Summary
The main objective of the research project is to assess the behavior of bonded rod assemblies under dynamic stresses. These wood / wood connections are used in solid wood frames and allow, among other things, to transfer the moment in beam-column connections. Their ability to dissipate energy under seismic loading will be evaluated by cyclic laboratory tests by varying the sections and configurations of the assemblies. The whole structure must be able to dissipate energy under dynamic loadings (earthquakes, wind) and the demand for ductility in the assemblies is considerable in rigid frame structures. This project will make it possible to characterize the behavior of timber / timber assemblies in glued rods under cyclic loads. The results obtained can be used by the partner for the seismic design of solid wood structures using these connections. Optimization and a better understanding of the dynamic behavior of these assemblies will also increase the safety of solid wood structures, and promote their acceptance in this developing market.
