Title: Assessment of modification factors for a row of bolts or timber connectors

Author: Wilkinson, Thomas Lee;

Date: 1980

Source: Res. Pap. FPL-RP-376. Madison, WI: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory. 24 pages

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: When bolts or timber connectors are used in a row, with load applied parallel to the row, load will be unequally distributed among the fasteners. This study assessed methods of predicting this unequal load distribution, looked at how joint variables can affect the distribution, and compared the predictions with data existing in the literature. Presently used design procedures were also assessed. The analytical methods were found to predict proportional limit loads but not joint strength.

Keywords: Timber connectors, bolts, fasteners, modification factors
