Paper Title
Test Results of Connections of Timber Structures

The paper outlines the results of static tests of bolted connections of rectangular cross-section timber with inserted steel plates. The tested specimens were subjected to tension parallel to the grain, where the load-deformation diagram of the connections was recorded. Fifteen specimens of three different distances between the fastener and the loaded end were tested. The results of the tests were statistically evaluated, complemented with graphical records of the load-deformation curves and compared with the calculations according to the valid standard for design of timber structures.
