Connection Design for "Band" Around Round Wood Column Splice

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I have a pile that I’m having to splice.


I am planning at this juncture to put a sheet-metal band around the pile covering the interface between the upper and lower piece, and fasten it through above and below the splice with lag screws.


I want this splice to be able to handle moments and shears. For shear I’m going to “assume” a 30 degree sector of the band as effective shear area.


For moment, I need to compute the forces at each fastener along the perimeter.


I need to “remember” how to calculate the contribution of each of these fasteners.
