Summary

In this study two experimental series were carried out. In the first part the embedding characteristics according to DIN EN 383 were investigated for solid wood, textile reinforcement and densified wood.

In the second part the load carrying behavior of a shear joint is investigated for different design parameters.

At present the authors intent the use of straight forward textile technology that allows an orientation of the fibre according to the local stress state and the shape of the construction element.
