WG 4 : Hybrid Timber Structures

The fundamental scientific knowledge of the behaviour of hybrid timber structures is less profound as for Solid Timber Construction and Connections. Therefore, the most important task within this Working Group is the collection and pre-processing of principal knowledge with respect to Hybrid Timber Structures. The Focus of this Working Group will be associated with the following aspects;

  • Compatibility: assure the compatibility between the materials of hybrid timber structures, aiming at optimizing the global design and Performance 
  • Long-term behaviour: variation of stiffness properties and their effect on load redistribution and serviceability of e.g. timber concrete composite (TCC) elements
  • Joints: configurations and methods to determine connection properties in e.g. timber concrete composite (TCC) elements. This issue will be addressed in close coordination with the topics, "performance criteria" and "testing", defined in WP3
  • Components for innovative structures: integrated hybrid systems as critical components for innovative construction solutions (e.g. multi-storey timber buildings)
