Re: 2001 NDS nail penetration

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A 10d common nail is 3" long, 0.148" dia.  Face nailed through a 2x member
[1.5"] into a 2x member [1.5"] it has a 10 diameter embedment into the main
member.  That is a very common nail application.  That seems like a good
start for establishing standard nail capacities.
