Consideration the semi-rigid behaviour of connections is an essential part of the modern way of the design of timber load-bearing structures. The computational models using the finite element method allow us to easily replace the use hinge operation with the appropriate stiffnesses of connections in the design. Taking the stiffness of the joint into consideration can have a significant influence on the load distribution and on the stiffness of the object as a whole. The paper contains the
more » ... ation process of the stiffness of selected connections. The mentioned stiffnesses could be used in modelling of timber load-bearing structures.
