Abstract:

During its lifespan, a pallet must withstand its imposed load without endangering its contents or the people handling it. To determine the amount of load a pallet will withstand requires a sound engineering analysis. The moment-rotation behavior of the joints between deckboards and stringers is needed for input to such an analysis. This report describes the joint behavior as affected by 1 deckboard species, 2 stringer species, 3 type of fastener, and 4 fastener pattern. The behavior is described by a mathematical model.
