Plywood Link

397

Description

It consists of a piece of plywood 10 cm wide by 120 cm long and varied thickness. In its extremities this will have finger joint. It will be the component of straight beams or curved beams. It will be used to create beams of the laminated type but without the need of special presses, that is to say that the people can make them in its own workshop or place of work. This Plywood Link has to be glued and screwed to ensure excellent adhesion with the other elements. If it is a question of constructing a straight beam, then an element 1 inch in thickness can be used and the fibers of the viewed facing should go in the long direction of the beam. In case of constructing a curved beam, a thinner plywood of half an inch is recommended, whose faces have the fiber perpendicular to the direction of the beam. In this case the element can be easily undulated without breaking. Considering these concepts will be possible to construct buildings without necessity of CLT, especially those that contain curved walls and intermediate floors. Even build mensulated structures, which can be strengthened with steel in the areas of high tensile stress. All this will help us to consider the use of wood in places and designs unimaginable. In the same way we can consider this element for the construction of new wooden ships. Reusing wood to build large transatlantic ships will be an ecological solution to the use of steel in modern ships. It will be possible to construct the shell of the ships without needing structural ribs because crossed the planes formed by the Plywood Links (similar to the CLT) will obtain a very firm board and with the desired undulation. I name this as Crossed Plywood Link Timber. In order to realize these undulated planes one must have a formwork with the desired shape, on which one begins to work. Beyond this approach in nautical science, I consider that naval engineers should consider everything related to structure and considerations to be taken in the face of water hazards, such as covering the part of the submerged ship with steel, etc.

Key benefit

Constructive element that allows to construct a wide variety of structures in architecture, civil engineering and nautical.

Material list

Plywood, glue and screws.

Ecological values

Being able to solve large structures in architecture, civil engineering and nautical with wood has a very positive impact as true ecological projects.
