Abstract
This paper presents the connection design of a large-span glulam restaurant building, where the building roof is a typical grid shell structure supported by alternating V-shaped columns on top of basement. In order to meet the requirements of structural lateral stiffness and architectural appearance, a new type of glued-in steel rods connection was designed, in which the steel plates were completely inserted in glulam beams. According to foreign and domestic relevant specifications, the behavior of this type of connection, including capacity and stiffness, is researched theoretically and experimentally. The results of experiments and design calculations are compared to validate the design method, and that the glued-in steel rods connection has high bearing capacity and enough bending stiffness.
