Pull-Through Capacity in Plywood and OSB

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalPaper without publisher/journalResearchpeer-review


The characteristic pull-through capacity of heads of nails and screws is needed to determine the rope effect for laterally loaded fasteners used to fix sheathing to timberframes. There is no values given in EN 1995 (Eurocode 5) but data for the pull through capacity of nail and screw heads has been found in four different references. All fasteners and panels are North American. A fairly general and accurate model is found and the characteristic values according to EN 1990 are determined.
