 Summary:
 Connections between timber structural elements are realized, usually with different steel jointing devices, which are installed in combination with specially shaped steel elements in accordance with certain theoretical settings and calculations. In the case of solid timber (C) or glued laminated timber (GL) constructions of large spans, there is a important consumption of steel for making connections between the elements of the primary and secondary structures. In this paper we give a brief overview of the development and improvement of modern models and methods of calculating connections in timber structures, through examples of original design solutions that have achieved the savings of connecting means in relation to the classic way of forming connections between timber elements. These solutions are followed by the need for high quality of glued laminated timber beams production and precision finishing.
