Wood Connection Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Fellow Alpha/Beta Testers:

Can anyone provide a reference for the "European Yield Model" on which bolt 
and nail connection requirements are supposedly based?  I can find nary a 
reference in the NDS or the Timber Construction Manual.  While the TCM cites 
references to tests of connections by Thayer and others (in the 1930's), 
there is no citation of tests of the "European Yield Model."
