Assessment and Reinforcement of timber elements and structures.
11th to 114th May 2015
University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal.




Content and Objectives: "Assessment and Reinforcement of timber elements and structures".

During the Training School (TS) of COST FP1101 that was held in Guimarães in 2015, a traditional timber truss, that has been recovered from a demolition has been tested. First, full-scale tests under cyclic loading in its original state have been done and later some reinforcements of the truss elements and joints have been studied and tested. Due to their influence on the overall response of the truss, special attention has been kept on carpentry joints.
Invited internationally recognised experts have been invited for this last TS of COST FP1101.
