Summary
With the increased use of timber and glued timber members in dynamic loading situations, updated testing and design specifications for timber products in Europe are needed. In connection with the development of a 140 m high timber wind turbine tower being developed by the company Ed. Züblin GmbH in Germany, fatigue testing...

Summary
The presented work examines the rolling shear properties of beech wood for the novel application as cross-layers in hybrid cross-laminated timber. Rolling shear modulus and strength of beech were determined by three different approaches: i) two-plate shear tests on single beech board slabs, and ii) compression shear and iii) bending...
