Simplified calculation model for interconnected timber elements using wood-wood connections

Metal fasteners and adhesive bonding are the main assembly methods in modern timber constructions. However, traditional wood-wood connections can be used effectively as well, thanks to increasing automation of the construction industry (CNC, robotics, etc.). The feasibility of this type of construction technique has been proven for buildings with complex geometry such as the wooden pavilion of the Vidy theatre [1]. As a result, this research is focused on the development of a simplified calculation model for standard construction elements using wood-wood connections called Through Tenon (TT). The goal is to obtain a dimensioning tool which is easy to use in practice for roof, slab and wall elements.
