Re: Clamping & Friction of Wood

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bending an all-thread rod is a bad idea.  The all-thread rod can bend by yielding only in the zones at the bases of the threads.  Thus the bend is formed by excessive yielding of limited lengths of the bent length of the rod.  Those zones may be near fracture when the assembly is installed and not capable of ductile response to the design loads.
