Description of module content:

Connection systems and load transfer mechanisms in timber structures:
Two and multi-member shear joints, splice and moment resisting joints using nails screws, staples, bolts and dowels, based on Johansen's equations.
Glued timber connections: shear, splice and moment resisting joints.
Connectors: use of toothed-plates, split-rings, shear-plates and punched metal-plates connection systems.
Connection behaviour using experimental techniques.
System behaviour and load transfer mechanisms in heavily loaded timber structures.
Composite constructions: I & boxed beams and spaced-columns.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1. compute the connection systems and load transfer mechanisms in timber structures;
LO2. analyse and design basic connection systems such as nails screws, staples, bolts and dowels, based
on Johansen's equations;
LO3. analyse and design glued timber connections;
LO4. design connections incorporating connectors such as toothed-plates, split-rings, shear-plates and
punched metal-plates;
LO5. explain timber connection behaviour using experimental techniques;
LO6. analyse and design composite timber structural systems.
