Abstract: This paper presents a description of the repair of timber structures using a prosthesis scarf\njoint designed for the replacement of damaged parts of beams. This new scarf joint makes use\nof the strutting effect of inclined contact faces where the forces are transmitted through\nwooden coupling elements - wooden dowels or keys. The scarf can be modified in four\nvariants according to the relevant stress and is suitable for historically valuable timber\nstructures. It meets both functional and aesthetic requirements. The designer - structural\nengineer will learn in the methods the load bearing capacity or stiffness of the beam with the\ndesigned joint, its recommended dimensions and detailed geometry. The contractor will\nappreciate the description of the execution and maintenance of the joint.
Keywords: carpentry joints; joint execution; load bearing capacity; replacement; scarf joint; stiffness
