dc.description.abstractThe level of technology used in the building industry is best described as ancient when compared to the likes of the boat building and aviation industries. Competitive demands in these industries have lead to the development of lighter stronger materials and also construction methods. One such material is fibre reinforced plastic (FRP). One such means of implementing FRP into the building industry is to reinforce timber joints with FRP. This paper examines the strength and cost of constructing joints in this manner. The timber joint to be tested is a perpendicular connection between a member which is to have a tension load applied to it and another larger member that as a consequence will have a bending force applied to it. The fibre reinforcing is laminated to one face of the tension member, around the perpendicular member and onto the opposite face of the tension member. It is possible to manufacture strong fibre reinforced timber joints cost effectively. Timber member sizes will be reduced because joints can be constructed stronger than the member, benefiting the construction industry. With the typical nailed or bolted joint, the timber member has to be oversized because the joint is weaker so a larger area was required.
