Testing of Nailplated Timber Joints to Study the Influence of Gap Width on Buckling Strength

This paper describes tests on timber joints formed with punched metal-plate fasteners (nailplates) where the gap width between the timber members was varied. The resulting effects on compression and bending strengths are discussed, and comparison is made with relevant Codes of Practice. A. Reffold, B.S. Choo, M. Dietermann and T. Falz
