Abstract

The article describes methodology of research on transparent wood in architectural constructions which is to be held at Faculty of Civil Engineering at Technical University in Košice. The goal is to set multiple stages of research to be able to obtain samples of transparent wood of different species and to evaluate them and subsequently to design constructions suitable for the properties of the obtained material. The aim is to be for the constructions of façade systems and beams of composite cross-section, possibly with the focus on “I” section beams made of transparent wood, but different approaches will also be considered. First, the designs will be evaluated and adjusted using suitable software and after, they will be built and experimentally tested. As the technology at the university will not allow the production of full scale models, some models in scale shall be produced and evaluated in Košice during the upcoming months.
