The paper relates to the issue of the contact mechanics in the innovative connections in hybrid timber structures. On the basis of the literature examples of the non-typical connections where the contact mechanic have to be investigated were discussed. In the paper are shown modern timber composites where connections are not systemized. Issue of the contact mechanic in finite element method related to the connections of the hybrid timber structures were elaborated. Spatial model of the “beam to beam” connection, based on the glued-in rods and advanced contact relations was shown. The necessity of the usage of advanced contact models was discussed and factors which affect the assumptions where presented.
