Pull-Out Strength Of Glued-In Rod Joints From LVL

Recently, the Japanese government enacted a new law in order to promote large wooden building. As a result, the momentum in the construction of large wooden building especially multi-stories wooden buildings in local area has been growing rapidly. In order to achieve these buildings, the higher structural performances than that by usual technique are required.GIR joint system is widely adapted for the joint part of wooden structures. Glued in rod joint-system(GIR) have high strength and high rigidity compared to existing joint-system. On the other hand, the structural LVL with the flexibility performance of cross-section and high structural performance is expected as a material for multi-stories wooden building. So, in this study, the pull-…
