This paper presents the results of experimental push-out tests on two different types of timber composite connections using only normal screws as the shear connecter. The push out tests were conducted based on Eurocode 5 recommendations and the load-slip responses obtained from lab tests are used to determine the stiffness of the connections at serviceability, ultimate and near collapse levels, and the performance of the connections are assessed at ultimate load. Moreover, an analytical model is derived for each type of connection based on the experimental results and using a non linear regression, which can be implemented into non-linear FE analysis of timber beams with normal screws. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group.
