Bonding in wooden construction
The five-day course is divided into two modules and is characterized by a high proportion of practical training in the laboratory and testing facility at the Fraunhofer WKI.
The first module forms the basis for bonding in wooden construction and, in addition to an overview of the normative and legal initial situation, contains essential content on adhesives (properties, selection, handling) and testing methods for adhesives. Furthermore, overviews are provided for wood as a material as well as for products and quality control.
The second module 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. As a specialization for bonding in wooden construction, it covers in detail the theory and practice of the renovation of bonded load-bearing timber components in existing buildings.
