>>When ever one deals with these associations, one has to understand were the funding comes from. This particular association promotes the use of engineered lumber, so one would expect them to provide alternate details to the use of other materials such as steel or concrete ect.<< Yes; that was one of the reasons I was hesitant to just go ahead and use the detail. Even though I could see that the forces could be resolved using basic statics equations, I am a bit skeptical that you could actually make a rigid connection using wood. I will try to find those publications, and I look forward to the APA research report that Mr. Rose tells me will be ready in the Spring. Test data etc. Should be very informative. >>If one were to use this detail, special inspection would be a consideration, along with the use of a good epoxy or wood adhesive might be in order.<< Which of course drives up the construction costs, defeating one of the main reasons for innovation!
