Structural timber element connections
CYPE Connect can model and analyse connections between structural timber elements and steel-to-timber elements, as well as connections between steel elements.
This feature allows users to design steel-to-timber connections. In this type of connection, forces are transmitted from one piece of timber to another by means of metal elements (fasteners and connections).
The connection between the different structural timber elements is achieved by means of dowel-type fasteners and auxiliary steel elements such as metal sheets or sections. The timber elements transmit their forces via the fasteners (bolts, dowels and screws) to all the other elements to which they are connected (steel sections and sheets).
