Paper Title:
Performance of the Nail Joints on Wood Frame Shear Walls
  Abstract

The performance of two types of Chinese screw nails in connections between sheathing and wood frame was assessed using ASTM-F1575-03. Specimens were tested in groups of 10, and both parallel-to-grain and perpendicular-to-grain specimens were tested in the case of ASTM-F1676-03. It was found that the type of nail had little effect on the performance of nail joints. Finally a modified model suitable to domestic nails in two directions was established on the basis of Foschi’s exponential model. The model provides useful data on the performance of sheathing-to-lumber connections.
