Abstract

This paper investigates the mechanical and the hysteretic behaviour of steel-to-timber joints with annular-ringed shank nails in Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT). These fasteners are used to anchor typical metal connectors, such as hold-downs and angle brackets, to the CLT panels. The experimental pro- gramme presented in the paper was carried out at the Institute of Timber Engineering and Wood Technology, Graz University of Technology (Graz, Austria). Average and characteristic values of the exper- imental strength capacities are evaluated and compared to the analytical predictions determined accord- ing to current structural design codes and literature. Furthermore, to fulfil the requirements of the capacity-based design, the overstrength factor and the strength degradation factor are evaluated and con- servative values are recommended.
