Abstract(s)Timber-framed architecture is an important heritage common of many countries. However, this is being lost due to natural decay but also climatic changes and natural hazards. To preserve it, it is important to understand the influence of such actions. Timber joints significantly affect the mechanical performances of timber-framed buildings, being the weakest element. In this paper, results are presented from cyclic pull-out test conducted on traditional timber joints subjected to wind driven rain and flood, both unreinforced and retrofitted, and a comparison is made with those obtained from sound specimens. Wetting-drying cycles mainly influence the stiffness and dissipation capacity.
