Abstract- The low cost construction demand has led to utilize timber as a construction material. The need for better strength in construction material has resulted reinforcing timber with steel elements. Six timber beams, reinforced with four steel angles at their corners, have been tested to investigate the combined beams behavior. Experimental tests and finite element method have been undertaken in the investigation process. A good agreement has been noticed between the experimental and finite element method in predicting the load carrying capacity for the test beams. It has been found that the stronger bond used between top and bottom angles, the more load carrying capacity for beams can be obtained and higher beams ductility can be achieved.
