Summary
In order to facilitate adoption of new mass timber products into practice, physical testing is required to understand and predict structural behavior. While extensive testing has been conducted at Oregon State on basic engineering properties of mass plywood panels (MPP) and MPP-to-MPP connections, there exists no experimental data on connections between MPP and other timber members (e.g. glulam) or on composite behavior of MPP with a concrete topping. Previous testing on CLT concrete-composite systems looked at different CLT-to-concrete connection systems, with HBV shear connectors-steel plates partially embedded in the timber with epoxy resin- as a strong candidate in terms of strength and stiffness performance. This project will focus on exploring the performance of MPP-concrete composite systems with HBV connectors.
