Mechanical Fasteners

This paper discusses commonly used mechanical fixings for structural timber joints and outlines some aspects of the interaction of the mechanical fastener with the timber. It gives information on basic formulae (SI units) in the current structural timber Code (CP 112: Part 2) and those proposed for its successor, now in final draft form (BS 5268: Part 2). Reference is also made to the new information on joints in the draft CIB structural timber Code. K.Thomas
