Timber structures - Test methods - Load bearing nails, screws, dowels and bolts

This European Standard specifies test methods for determining the strength and deformation characteristics of laterally loaded connections with nail, screws, dowels and bolts in load-bearing timber structures.
The methods assess connections with members of timber (solid timber or glued laminated timber) or wood-based products or metal plates (but not punched metal plate fasteners) in the combination proposed for use in service.
The methods are used to determine load-slip characteristics and maximum load of connections where various angles between the applied force and the timber grain direction, or the main direction of the wood-based products, respectively, are possible.

Holzbauwerke - Prüfverfahren - Tragende Verbindungen mit Nägeln, Schrauben, Stabdübeln und Bolzen

In dieser Europäischen Norm werden Prüfverfahren zur Bestimmung der Festigkeits- und Verformungs-eigenschaften von auf Abscheren belasteten Verbindungen mit Nägeln, Schrauben, Stabdübeln oder Bolzen in tragenden Holzbauwerken festgelegt.
Mit den Verfahren werden Verbindungen mit Holzteilen (Vollholz oder Brettschichtholz) oder Holzwerkstoffen oder Metallblechen (jedoch keine Nagelplatten) in der für die Anwendung vorgesehenen Kombination beurteilt.
Die Verfahren dienen zur Bestimmung des Last-Verschiebungsverhaltens und der Höchstlast von Verbindungen, wobei verschiedene Winkel zwischen der einwirkenden Last und der Faserrichtung des Holzes oder der entsprechenden Hauptrichtung von Holzwerkstoffen möglich sind.

Structures en bois - Méthode d'essai - Pointes, tire-fonds, broches et boulons porteurs

La présente Norme européenne définit les méthodes d'essai permettant de déterminer les caractéristiques de
résistance et de déformation d'assemblages connectés latéralement par pointes, tire-fonds, broches et
boulons dans des structures porteuses en bois.
Les méthodes supposent l'assemblage d’éléments en bois (massif ou lamellé collé), en produits à base de
bois ou de plaques métalliques (à l'exception des connecteurs à plaque métallique emboutie) dans des
combinaisons correspondant à leur emploi en service.
Les méthodes sont utilisées pour déterminer les caractéristiques force-glissement ainsi que la charge
maximale des assemblages avec un angle quelconque entre la force appliquée et l'orientation des fibres du
bois ou de la direction principale des produits à base de bois.

3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1 deformation of the connection mean value of the measurements of the relative displacements of the members 3.2 dowel type fasteners elements such as nails, screws, dowels and bolts as defined by EN 14592 4 Symbols and abbreviations For the purposes of this document, the following symbols and abbreviations apply. b
width of member cross-section, in millimetres F load, in newtons t member thickness, in millimetres 5 Requirements 5.1 Timber The timber (solid timber or glued laminated timber) shall satisfy the requirements of EN 14080, EN 14081-1 and shall be selected in accordance with either of the methods given in EN 28970. For each test piece, the individual members to be joined shall be selected to ensure a test piece of balanced density. For a group of similar test pieces, separate planks shall be used for each test piece. NOTE The members should be free from major defects, which could lead to premature failure in the area away from the fasteners. 5.2 Wood-based products The specification of the wood based products shall be established.
