Performance of Mechanical Fasteners Used with Engineered Wood ProductsCompleted

Project leaders: Smith, Ian, Asiz, Andy
 

Objective:

Evaluate performance of traditional and modern fasteners used in Canadian manufactured EWP, with emphasis on laminated veneer lumber (LVL).

Establish principles and test protocols for evaluation of non-standard fasteners. This would set expectations for new products entering the marketplace via Product Evaluation Reports of the Canadian Constructions Materials Centre at NRC (or equivalent).

Implement the design information (for Canadian manufactured EWP) and protocols within the framework of Canadian standards falling under the jurisdiction of the CSA O86 ‘Engineering Design in Wood’ Technical Committee.
