Performance of the Nail Joints on Wood Frame Shear Walls

Abstract:

Article Preview

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.
