Tubular connector for connecting mixed wood – concrete beams
The invention relates to a tubular connector used for the construction of mixed wood-concrete structures. The functional need is represented by: good performance in terms of stiffness and simplicity of construction and execution.
The invention proposes a tubular connector for connecting structural elements, characterised by the fact that it is made integral by means of a tubular trace cavity without the use of resins and other adhesives. The structural elements composing the connector are a wooden beam and a concrete slab. In addition, the structural element does not have any pre-drilled holes.
