Open: Adhesive Joints in Timber Engineering

Wood adhesive joints play an important role in modern timber engineering In order to add value to the raw material several highly engineered woodbased products have been developed Often these involve the use of adhesive joints Typical examples of such reconstituted materials are glued laminated timber (glulam) and laminated veneer lumber(LVL). In each of these adhesive joints are used both for lengthwise splicing and for interlaminar bonding Another example of an adhesive joint application in timber engineering is that of glued in rods which allow stiff and strong beam to column connections or column foundations to be obtained.
