|Title:||Evaluation of the Equivalent Slip Modulus of Nailed Connections for Application in Linear Analysis of Plywood Timber Beams|
|Abstract:||The study of the stiffness of laterally loaded semi-rigid connections in plywood-timber beams is justified by the influence that the deformation of the connection has on the overall displacements of the structure. Semi-rigid connections are characterized by the occurrence of a slip between the connected pieces. The characterization of a connection is usually based on an isolated single connector behavior, which is described by its load-slip relationship expressed by the slip modulus, and so it is extended to the group of connectors. Although the method of analysis is well established, the concept of equivalent slip modulus, defined as the slip modulus per unit length of a connection, has not been totally explored. In this study, we focus on the experimental determination of the equivalent slip modulus for mechanically analyzing plywood-timber beams with continuous connections. The results demonstrated that the test is suitable for obtaining experimental values of the equivalent slip modulus.|
