Development Of Continuous Composite Joints On The Basis Of Polymer Mortar With Matched Properties

For demanding applications with increased requirements in terms of load-carrying capacity and long spans, the HighTech Timber Beam® (HTB) – a hybrid composite beam made of glulam and high-performance materials – was developed at the Bauhaus University in cooperation with a local SME [1]. The applicability of the High-Tech Timber Beam® for TCC constructions (Timber-ConcreteComposite) is examined in ongoing research. In former investigations several studies with new technologies and materials for rehabilitation and strengthening of historic timber structures were carried out at the Bauhaus University [3]. Within those studies, several formulations of glue-mortar based on epoxy resin and mineral fillings (hereinafter also referred to as PC – p…
