A Scarf Joint for Reconstructions of Historical Structures
This Traditional joints used for the restoration of historical timber structures are not designed according to standards. A very common joint is a vertical splice skew with a key. Unfortunately, the forces mutually acting in its separated parts are not known. It is only their limits that may be derived with some accuracy, but even this is very valuable for practice. The accurate values may be obtained from measurements or experiments.
