The four-day focus course provides basic knowledge on the manufacture and application of wood-based materials. Theory and practical training are closely coordinated. The practical units take place in the laboratories of the Fraunhofer WKI.

The module »Renovation of bonded load-bearing timber components« is performed in close cooperation with the Institut für Baukonstruktion und Holzbau (institute for building design and timber construction, iBHolz) of the Technische Universität Braunschweig.

Module 1: Fundamentals of bonding in wooden construction

  • Legal and normative fundamentals
  • Material properties of wood and influence on bondings
  • Properties, selection, handling of adhesives
  • Relevant testing methods for adhesives
  • Regulated, bonded products and quality control

 

Module 2: Renovation of bonded load-bearing timber components

  • Bonding procedures on the construction site
  • Occupational safety, quality control and construction-site monitoring, damage assessment, company audit
