General Dowel Equations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am designing a "traditional" structure, using mortice-tenon connection details. 
 
1)    Is it reasonable to use the "General Dowel Equations for Calculating Lateral Connection Values", AF&PA Report 12 for assessing connections using oak dowels and pins?
 
2)    Does anyone have design data for oak pins/dowels?
 
TIA
