Title:
Robustness of Secondary Structures in wide-span Timber Structures. 
Pages contribution:
1264 - 1273 
Abstract:
Design rules for robustness require insensitivity to local failure and the prevention of progressive collapse. This paper will evaluate typical secondary structures for timber roof structures against these requirements, comparing the results against typical reasons for damages and failure. Applying the finding that most failures of timber structures are not caused by local effects but by global (systematic) defects, it is shown that the objective of load transfer - often mentioned as preferable...    »
