BRIDGE 1 Project "Screw-press gluing of cross laminated timber elements (SPV_BSP)"

Project duration 07/2017 - 06/2019

Within the BRIDGE 1 project SPV-BSP the holz.bau forschungs gmbh in cooperation with representatives of the woodworking industry deals with the topic of screw-press gluing of assemblies with cross laminated timber elements.
The considered research project is divided into three work packages that can be summarized as follows:

  • The aim of the first work package is to get an overview of dimensional tolerances of glued laminated timber and cross laminated timber which occur in production process by carrying out both in-situ measurements and evaluation of factory quality assurance activities.
  • The second work package deals with the pressing force resulting from applied screws. To this end experimental and theoretical studies are used in order to develop regulations concerning the necessary screw grid for a given (or rather required) pressing force.
  • The third work package combines the findings of the first two work packages and at its core addresses calculation approaches or rather boundary conditions for the production of composite components by means of screw-press gluing with the involvement of cross laminated timber.

Funding programme BRIDGE 1

BRIDGE 1 project | 25. Call for tender

The goal of the funding programme BRIDGE 1 is further development of potentials of both potentials of basic research and experimental development. The Programme contributes to deepening a research cooperation between science and economy, facilitates the access for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) to scientific research, favours the transfer of researchers from universities to industrial research and intensifies the research achievement in the area of high-quality industrial research and experimental development.
