Composite systems enhance the structural capacity and reliability of wood solutions for structures. With today engineered wood products and structural adhesives, high performing structures can be constructed. Hybrid assembly techniques that combine mechanical fasteners and an adhesive (screw- and nailgluing techniques) allow manufacturing large dimension composite structures with reasonable infrastructure. They also give full composite properties to the interlayers. Furthermore, these hybrid connections can experience ductility. This paper presents a research on small-scale glued assemblies which were manufactured using screw- and nail-gluing techniques. It discusses qualitative and quantitative analyses that confirmed the full-composite properties and ductility of the interlayers. The analyses also show that superposing the behaviour of both connectors is reasonable to predict the strength and slip modulus of hybrid connections. © 2007 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
