Volume 39, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1021-2019



The paper looks at alternative round timber pole connections that make mono-planar structures and trusses a possibility. Three different systems are discussed and where test results are available, these are compared with theoretical values. It is shown how the performance of a connection can be improved by changing the failure mode of the connector and the timber.
