Abstract:

Theoretical methods of analysis have been developed for predicting the lateral resistance of two-member nailed joints by incorporating a material property called the elastic bearing constant. To extend the use of these theories to structural analysis, the elastic bearing constant was determined for various sheathing materials, such as plywood, hardboard, insulation board, particleboard, and gypsum board.
