This Standard provides basic procedures based on joint ultimate load or a limiting slip for the determination of the lateral strength resistance and lateral slip resistance of truss plate teeth embedded in lumber members.
This Standard provides for the determination of the lateral strength resistance and lateral slip resistance of nails embedded in lumber members when used in nail-on truss plates. When this Standard is so applied, the word tooth is understood to be replaced by the word nail.
This Standard provides basic procedures based on truss plate ultimate strength for the determination of the tensile and shear strengths of the net section of the plates.
The capacities determined by testing methods and procedures described herein, and corrected for the variations in the ultimate tensile strength of the plate material used in the manufacture of the test truss plates, will yield values that may be adjusted for use in engineering design, such as specified in CSA Standard O86.1 and its Supplement, O86.1S1.
