The paper presents the results of vibrational loading of nailed and bolted wood joints subjected to a range of frequencies and dead loads. Each joint was tested as a spring-mass system subjected to base excitation. Results indicate a considerable increase in joint stiffness under vibrational loading as compared to static loading with very small amounts of additional joint deformation.
