Effect of metal connector plates on the bending strength of solid sawn lumber and LVL: a pilot study



Effect of metal connector plates on the bending strength of solid sawn lumber and LVL: a pilot study



Forest Products Journal 52(10): 71-74



Seventy-four bending specimens, with and without metal connector plates (MCPs), were tested to determine the effect of the teeth of MCPs on the bending strength of solid sawn lumber (SSL) and laminated veneer lumber (LVL). The teeth of the MCPs were 3/8 inch long. Based on the results of this pilot study, statistical analysis showed that there was no effect on the bending strength of SSL and LVL.
