Load carrying capacity of cracked beams

Steffen Franke, Bettina Franke & Noëlie Magnière
The increasing number of wood structure amongst large and potentially public buildings gave a new impulse to the assessment of timber structures. For assessing the state of timber elements, cracks are a key indicator. Therefore, experimental and numerical investigations on not cracked and partly cracked timber members were carried out and analysed. The results show no influence on the stiffness and modulus of elasticity for partly cracked beams. The experimental results were used for the...
