Summary
The joints are very important structural element in timber framed structures. The purpose of this study is to develop the high-strength and high-ductility beam-column joint for timber structure. In this study, steel plate fastened with drift pins and paste the ultraviolet-ray hardening Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP) on the surface of the member section. The wood is the anisotropic material of which the strength characteristic greatly differs according to the direction of the fiber. The strength of the fiber direction is high, but the strength of the fiber orthogonal direction is low. Also, the splitting failure is caused in the fiber orthogonal direction, and there is a case in which strength and toughness extremely lower. It is necessary to consider the weak point of such woody material for the case in which the wood is used as a structural element for timber framed structure. It is very important to be ensured the earthquake-proof safety of the building, and prevent a building collapse for the great earthquake. This study reinforces weak point on the strength of woody material by using the ultraviolet-ray hardening FRP. Then, timber framed joint of the high-strength and high ductility is developed as a structural element. In this study, the verification experiment is carried out for the joint element specimens of the large section wood.
