The remainder of this paper presents an experimental study aimed at collecting information on the response of knee connections under high amplitude fully-reversed rotational deformations, and comparing findings with requirements of EC8. 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. The connections investigated attached twinned glulam column members to a glulam rafter using steel dowels. These connections are typically employed in Italy.

Abstract

The remainder of this paper presents an experimental study aimed at collecting information on the response of knee connections under high amplitude fully-reversed rotational deformations, and comparing findings with requirements of EC8. 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. The connections investigated attached twinned glulam column members to a glulam rafter using steel dowels. These connections are typically employed in Italy.
