Structural Performance of Value-Added Building ComponentsCompleted

Project leaders: Barrett, David
 

Objective:

Expand the use of value-added building components in residential and non-residential wood construction in North America, Japan and other markets by using integrated CAD/CAM systems that allow architects to produce high quality, attractive and simple to assemble building structures. This research will:

  • Develop models and test data for predicting the strength and permissible loads for wood-to-wood glulam and solid sawn connections produced by the Hundegger processing system;
  • Develop appropriate grading rules and design properties for large cross-section Douglas-fir, Spruce-Pine-Fir and Hem-Fir sawn lumber members used in Post and beam construction;
  • Investigate manufacturing variables and optimize the performance of finger joints for producing finger joined heavy timber sections;
  • Investigate the influence of manufacturing and workmanship variables on the performance of manufactured housing and site built components.
