Scientific Methods for Determination of Wooden Corner Joint Designs

Research subject and fields:

At the present time and under current market conditions, where the interest is focused on fast profit, furniture constructor has to offer a fast, reliable and not expensive choice of construction solution according to designer’s demands. The way of deformation of construction durability according to regulations and standards for furniture testing is nowadays often replaced with simulation models for construction testing. This paper presents the analysis of methods for testing construction assemblies. Examples are given for corner joints and furniture having this type of joint. The results of systematic research are also presented with the analysis of parameters affecting the quality of furniture. Since no precise computatonal models have been determined that could replace the actual testing of construction assemblies, in future a more intensive research can be expected in finding models for applying computer-based modelling applicable in developing and designing phase of production.
