Abstract

Renewed interest in the use of green oak and similar framing techniques, coupled with the restoration of historic framed buildings, has presented many structural engineers with difficulties when analysing the structural performance and integrity of traditional carpentry connections. At the University of Bath, there have been a number of research projects to investigate the engineering behaviour of traditional timber frames [1] [2]. This paper is a study of two types of traditional joint - scarf joints and tension joints. It gives limited data on the test results and postulates failure mode as a basis for further work.
