Abstract

Previous studies have shown that double shear timber connections with glass fibre reinforced polymer dowels are a viable alternative to metallic timber connections. Different models have been proposed for predicting the load capacity of the connection. A model which accurately predicts stiffness for connections of this type is, however, not yet published. This paper discusses a two dimensional linear finite element model that predicts the slip modulus of non-metallic timber connections made with pultruded dowels. The model is compared to experimental results and it is concluded that the two dimensional model is accurate.
