Nailed joints designed for torsion
Authors: Moysey, E. B.
Description: Shear strength of nailed joints is given in most textbooks on farm buildings as well as in other publications such as the National Building Code (2). It is well established that shear strength depends upon nail diameter, the species of lumber and the moisture content of the lumber. Penetration of the point at least half way into the receiving member is assumed (5). Most sources give only the strength in single shear, but it has been shown that nails loaded in double shear have approximately twice the shear strength of nails loaded in single shear (4). Most references do not give any indication of the ultimate strength of nails loaded in shear rather the allowable load or safe load only is given. The author
