Summary
Assemblies by glued rods allow architectural freedom. They are in fact invisible since they are found in the mass of the structural element. Some studies have started to document this type of assembly by considering static single-rod traction tests and single-rod 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 single-rod assemblies but especially multi-rods. The objective of this project will therefore be to document the capacity of these assemblies to take up lateral loads.
