Abstract


The construction of a spatial grid using stackable modules of glued-laminated timber bars with boxsection has provided the germ for an experimental approach of the behaviour of these types of bars. Thepaper presents the results of experimental campaign, both prior to the construction of the structure, such asreal bars subsequent trials. Both tension tests and compression tests using bars with different slendernesshave been conducted. The results show the interest of the proposed solutions and the feasibility of itsuse in this type of structure.
