Abstract

This paper reports on experiments conducted to investigate the pull-out capacity of steel bars bonded parallel to the grain into timber elements. The experimental programme investigated the influence of bar diameter, bonded length and bar type (deformed and threaded) on the structural capacity of bonded-in rod joints. In order to simulate realistic conditions in which the bars may not be perfectly centalised in the holes, it was necessary to conduct some pull-out tests on timber blocks where the bars were deliberately misaligned in the holes. The results showed that bar diameter, bonded length and rod type significantly influenced the strength of the joints. The experimental results were also used to validate some established theoretical models.
