Re: Fwd: NDS Shear values

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The allowable shear stress was doubled but the adjustment factor (max
2.0) was removed. Is not what you said previously correct? Factor is in
effect 1.0 !!!

 OOPS! I meant a factor of two.

Paul-
There is an explanation of the changes in shear stresses at the top
left on page two of the following article from the American Wood Council
Website: 
www.awc.org/Publications/papers/NDS2001article.pdf 
 
In answer to your question, yes the shear stress values have been
increased by a factor of about 1.

Being from CA, we are current code challenged.
 
In the 2001 NDS, the table 4 shear values are doubled from the 1997
version.  Is this correct? Have the allowable shear values been
increased by a factor of 2?
