Allowable shear capacity of nails

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What is the allowable shear capacity of a typical common nail or how may it be determined?  Also, what are the typical Fy and Fu values for nails?  Reference?  The NDS lists Fyb values and the 1997 NDS Appendix I section I.4 states "Recent research indicates that Fyb for bolts is approximately equivalent to the average of bolt tensile yield strength and bolt tensile ultimate strength, Fyb = Fy/2 + Fu/2."
