Abstract
There is a need of more advanced analysis for studying how the long-term behaviour of glued laminated timber structures is affected by creep and by cyclic variations in climate. A beam theory is presented able to simulate the overall hygro-mechanical and...

Abstract
The Chair of Structures and Structural Design of the RWTH Aachen University, in cooperation with the Institute of Building Materials Research Aachen (ibac) and SPAX® International, has developed timber connections using self-tapping screws as reinforcing and joining elements. The focus was put on rigid frame corners that achieved...

Abstract
The reinforcement of timber elements using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) rods or plates is widely accepted as an effective method of increasing the strength and stiffness of members. The short-term behaviour of these reinforced members is relatively well understood, however, the long-term or creep behaviour of such members has...
