  According to Table 10.3.1 of 2005 NDS, the load duration factor is applied to the controling lateral or withdrawal fastener connection value when determining the adjusted value. It's not applied directly to the fastener's bearing strength.

Is Fe itself modified by CD? I’m looking at a table of nail capacities (prepared by someone else) and the author has different values for Fe based on different values of CD.
