Experimental Analysis of Composite Timbre-Concrete Wall Element
2012 (English)In: Proceedings of the 15th European conference on composite materials, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
The authors present an experimental and theoretical study on a composite or hybrid element used in residential and agricultural buildings. The composite wall element consists of timber studs connected to a concrete plate by means of nail plate shear connectors. Experimental results are presented and compared with an analytical model for partial composite action. A good agreement is obtained between the analytical and experimental results. Also, some suggestions to improve the design of the composite element are discussed.
