Strength parameters for fasteners determined in accordance with the methods prescribed for the European CE-marking leads to quite different values for seemingly similar products from different manufactures. The results are hardly repeatable, to some extent due to difficulties in selecting representative on engineered wood products...
Acoustic emission (AE) characteristics of full-hole bolt-bearing testing on structural composite lumbers (SCL) including laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and oriented strand lumber (OSL) were investigated. The main conclusion is that AE cumulative...

Timber provides attractive earthquake performance characteristics for regions of high seismic risk, particularly its high strength-to-weight ratio; however, current timber structural systems are associated with relatively low design force reduction factors due to their low inherent ductility when compared to high-performance concrete and steel...
This work attempted to investigate adhesion performance of melamine-urea-formaldehyde (MUF) resin adhesives for bonding glued-laminated timber (Glulam). Two preparation methods were employed to formulate MUF resins with various melamine contents from 20 % to 50 %: one-step method of synthesizing MUF resins in a batch...
