Abstract

The scope of the following research undertaken at the University of Queensland looks into timber bonded joints and failure mode changes when fire relevant heat is applied. Pre-defined temperature profiles through the timber enabled testing of a range of bond line temperatures for a range of heat fluxes from realistic fire exposures. A single lap shear test was used as the testing methodology for the experimental study with a focus on failure mode observation, failure loads and bond line slip. A series of temperature tests were conducted resulting in the identification of failure mode changes with increasing bond line temperatures along with the observations of bond line slipping and normal force peeling.
