Assemblies with glued-in rods allow architectural freedom. They are in fact invisible since they are found in the mass of the structural element. Some work has begun to document this type of assembly by considering static tests in single-sided traction and single-sided creep tests (Verdet, 2016). In order to continue this effort to specify the limits of this type of assembly, it is proposed to consider the lateral forces for assemblies with single and multiple rod connections. This project will therefore aim to document the ability of these assemblies to carry lateral loads.
