Bonded-in Rods for Timber Structures: a Versatile Method for Achieving Structural Connections

This paper presents an overview of work-in-progress in relation to the use of commercial adhesives to bond rods into oversized holes in order to achieve structural connections in timber and timber-based composite products. The work presented forms a 3-year European project titled ‘GIROD: Glued-In Rods For Timber Structures@, performed through collaborative activities between partners from the UK, Germany, and Sweden. The objectives, study items, and progress to date, are summarised, with particular emphasis upon issues of fatigue and design Code development. R.J. Bainbridge and C.J. Mettem
