A new kind of rapid bonding technology offers specific economical and technical advantages over commonly used bonding techniques in load-bearing timber construction for prefabricated house building. It could even prove to be an effective supplement to the widely used nailing or stapling techniques for connecting wooden frames for laying planks and, especially, the planking boards and allow a more stable construction.

In prefabricated house construction, wood panel construction is dominant with framework constructions made of squared timber (spruce or pine) and attached planks made of various panel materials. Entire wall or ceiling modules are prefabricated, loaded onto trucks and installed on the building shell within a short time on the building site. The panel materials (particleboards, cement-bonded particleboards or OSB panels) are usually stapled or nailed, although the use of exclusively mechanical joining techniques limit the construction, e.g. in terms of the size of the...

Notes

Thanks

The IFS and the WKI thank the members of the committee accompanying the project for their great interest and extensive advice. The IGF project no. 17.311 N of the research association International Association for Technical Issues Related to Wood (iVTH) is promoted via the AiF as part of the program for promoting Industrielle Gemeinschaftsforschung (IGF) of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology on the basis of a decision of the German Bundestag. The authors express their sincere gratitude for this support.
