Abstract This work presents a design framework for the selection of the topology and cross‐section size of elastic timber gridshells, taking as constraints the shape of the structure and the maximum value of bending stress that can be reached in

Abstract In timber structures, knowledge of the splitting capacity of beams loaded perpendicular to the grain by dowel-type connections is of primordial importance since brittle failure can occur. In the present work, single- and double-dowel-type connections following different loaded edged

Abstract Elastic timber gridshells are lightweight structures whose stiffness is highly dependent on multiple factors, such as boundary conditions and the semi-rigidity and eccentricity of the joints. Their structural analysis requires calibrated numerical models that incorporate all aspects influencing stiffness.

Abstract Eucalyptus globulus L. is a hardwood species with high mechanical properties and great potential for engineered timber products. In the development of glued laminated products using high density wood species such as eucalyptus, bonded joints (e.g. fingerjoints) could be
