RE: Fwd: NDS Shear values

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I agree with you 100%.
I have used the shear adjustment factor than only once while checking
an exising beam.

Thanks to everyone.

Suresh, actually the value is really 2, at least for me.  I do not
know
many engineers in practice who would typically utilize the "no splits
or
checks" factor in normal design, you just don't know what you are
going
to get in the field.  By making it standard, the utilization of the
increase is much greater.

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?
