Wood "Nailed" Moment Connection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Eric, Did you design the plywood splices for the max moment? If so how does the design proceedure go?
There is a reference to moment connections in the "Wood Engineering and
Construction Handbook" by Faherty and Williamson (McGraw-Hill).  They =
two different cases, a multiple steel plate connection and a rigid steel
plate connection.  The single rigid plate can cause splitting of wood =
due to
restrained shrinkage.  The multiple plate anchorage minimizes that =
For similar conditions to yours, but a steeper slope, I've used plywood
gussets at the ridge (no ceiling in the space, so no collar ties were
available) in residential construction. =20
