RE: Bolt to plywood

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Thanks for responses.

 

I received a direct response from someone at APA.  They emailed me a copy of “Fastener Loads for Plywood – Bolts” Technical Note # 825E.  I have a similar one for screws already but this is exactly what I need.  If anyone’s interested I’m sure you can find it on APA’s website or you can email me.

I hate to disrupt the fun threads with something structural engineering related but I have a question….

 

How would you go about calculating the shear value of a ½” dia. Thru bolt attaching a steel plate and ¾” plywood?  I’ve never done bolts in plywood before nor do I think it’s that good of an idea but in this case its unavoidable.  Has anyone else dealt with bolts in plywood before?
