Abstract

Concern about fatigue is one of the factors limiting use of glass/epoxy jointing systems for timber in construction. In this paper, a series of high-cycle fatigue tests are reported which indicate that the performance is as good, if not superior to, conventional jointing systems. The performance of the joints was found to produce a straight line on a logarithmic S–N plot and thus be readily predictable for design purposes.
