This paper presents an experimental study aimed at collecting information on the response of knee connections to high amplitude fully-reversed rotational deformations, and compares the findings with seismic performance requirements in Eurocode 8. The connections investigated attached twinned outer glulam members to a single glulam member sandwiched between them using steel dowels. Attention is also directed at assessing whether the timber design provisions of Eurocode 5 can be used to estimate moment capacities and rotational stiffness of such knee connections.

Abstract

This paper presents an experimental study aimed at collecting information on the response of knee connections to high amplitude fully-reversed rotational deformations, and compares the findings with seismic performance requirements in Eurocode 8. The connections investigated attached twinned outer glulam members to a single glulam member sandwiched between them using steel dowels. Attention is also directed at assessing whether the timber design provisions of Eurocode 5 can be used to estimate moment capacities and rotational stiffness of such knee connections.
