    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : An increased use of wood can reduce the environmental footprint of the building sector by being a renewable and ecological material. In order to improve the competitiveness of heavy timber structures, this thesis presents a novel type of timber connection with a high degree of prefabrication, which utilizes a resilient bond line.
