Application Of Linear Fracture Mechanics To Timber Engineering

By R. H. Leicester


This paper describes the application of linear elastic fracture mechanics to the design of structural timber members. These include non-zero angle notches, glued lap joints and the butt joints of laminated timber members. The results of this research were used in the development of design rules given in AS 1720, the Australian Timber Engineering Design Code
