Abstract

In this study, new timber joints utilizing structural adhesive that can ensure higher stiffness and strength were developed. Experimental testing was conducted to confirm the lateral capacity performance of the proposed joint. To develop structural design methods using the joint, the local shear characteristics of the proposed joint were confirmed by structural component tests and finite element analysis. By modeling and analyzing building frames utilizing the joint, it was found that modifying the geometry of the steel plates to ensure yielding or plasticizing the adhesive layer results in better ductility and energy dissipation characteristics.
