Load-Carrying Capacity And Failure Modes Of Glulam Beams With Reinforced Notches

The structural behaviour and failure mechanisms of unreinforced and reinforced notched glulam beams were studied in a test series. It could be shown that shear failure of the reinforced notched beam is an important failure mechanism and that adequate reinforcement in tension perpendicular to grain and shear is required in order to regain the load-carrying capacity of the reduced cross-section of the glulam beam.…
