R&D on innovative joints for temporary timber constructions. IDANMAD.
The main objective of the project is developing innovative mechanical joints specifically designed for timber elements and constructions to facilitate the mounting/assembly process, versatility and maintenance of temporary constructions with simple rectangular shapes or free and complex geometries. The final goal is to provide the construction sector with new techniques and tools that will solve the joint problems in timber structures and that will foster an increase of the use of wood in construction.
New innovative joint systems will be designed for temporary constructions allowing the use of timber in versatile and secure constructions where timber was not used before.
Moreover, an assembly and installation system will be designed in order to simplify the logistics and transport of the structural components.
These joints will be designed for simple and complex geometries. The main aim is to develop a joint, simple in his shape, but flexible enough to make it possible the construction of any kind of geometry with only one type of anchorage.
With these new anchorages, temporary constructions will be more sustainable and will be more ecologically friendly that traditional ones.
