T Transversal Tension

Transversal tension describes tensile forces perpendicular to the beam axis.

The forces transverse to the beam arise in duopitch roof beams, for example. Due to the low resistance of timber against transversal tension, these forces are often governing in the design.

In order to prevent cracking or failure of a beam due to the transversal tension, a transversal tension reinforcement in the form of screws or pins is often applied to the beam.
