    provide the needed moment resistance as they are governed by the tension perpendicular to grain and longitudinal shear strengths of timber: the two weakest strength properties of wood. Blaß and Bejtka [1], Bejtka [2], Blaß et al. [3] reported past research on using the self tapping screws as perpendicular-to-grain reinforcements. It is shown that existing models for describing mechano-sorption perpendicular to grain are inaccurate when applied to multiple humidity cycles. The present results demonstrate that if the mechano-sorptive behaviour and the moisture gradients in wood can be accurately described, it is possible to predict the stress distribution in a timber Cited by:

    Ten full-size ( × m) plywood roof diaphragms were constructed using metal-plate-connected (MPC) common and hip wood trusses or joists, typical of single-family dwelling (SFD) specimens included three gable roof slopes of 33, 67, and %, a hip roof of 33% slope, and a flat roof, with a horizontal bottom chord. THE SHEAR STRENGTH, AND FAILURE MODES, OF TIMBER JOISTS OBTAINED FROM THE TORSION TEST METHOD Aamir Khokhar1, Hexin Zhang2, Daniel Ridley-Ellis3 ABSTRACT: This paper presents details of the experimental method and test results from a series of torsion tests undertaken to evaluate the shear strength of timber joists.

BOWING IN ROOF JOISTS INDUCED BY MOISTURE GRADIENTS AND SLOPE OF GRAIN By ROGER L. TUOMI, Engineer and DARREL M.

However, moist air within a building can enter a roof assembly and condense into water. The climate in which a building is located significantly will affect the type, direction of flow and degree of moisture migration and vapor drive that will occur.

In steep soil-mantled landscapes, the initiation of shallow landslides is strongly controlled by the distribution of vegetation, whose roots reinforce the by: The moisture induced stresses perpendicular to grain may exceed the tensile and compressive strength perpendicular to the grain of wood even in the absence of external mechanical loads [7,8].

Through statistical analysis it was possible to estimate the parameters of variability of shear stress with the slope of the wood fibers.

The shear stresses were corrected to standard moisture of 12%. For general aircraft work the grain slope must not be steeper than 1 in 15 and for wing spars the slope should not be steeper than 1 in As previously stated, wood with no slope at all is best. If the annual rings can be seen on the edge-grained face, simply measure the slope of the annual rings.

_____, also known as _____, is a key element in the advanced framing method. _____ is a method of construction where roof trusses, wall studs, and floor joists are constructed in a vertical line so that the load transfers directly to the structural member below it.

Tabular information for maximum slope of grain of softwood and hardwood (p). Where spiral grain occurs, the slope of grain should be determined by measuring the worst slopes of grain on the faces and on the edges and taking the square root of the sum of the squares of the slopes (p).File Size: KB.

Roof decks on low-slope roofs must: contain enough joints to accommodate thermal expansion and contraction c. slope toward drainage points at an angle sufficient to drain reliably or accommodate tapered insulation that will slope towards drains. Measuring slope of grain. The slope of grain is expressed as a ratio of rise to run.

For example, if the grain rises 1 cm over a run of 10 cm, the slop of grain will be 1 in The best way to measure slope of grain is to find the worst section in the piece, measure mm along the length, and find out what the rise is over that distance. geotechnical characteristics of soil as Grain size, Optimum moisture content and Cohesive strength has been taken in consideration to design and construct the high embankment up to 20m.

This paper looks at the effects that loading and changes in moisture content and relative humidity can have on timber in buildings. LONG-TERM LOADING OF BEAMS A typical example of deterioration in timber affecting its strength is the bressummer : Alan Holmes.

Timber structures and wooden element are in general affected by moisture and moisture variation in different ways. Their hygroscopic properties result in adsorption of water when wetted and in desorption when dried.

Because the volume of wood is not constant but varies with the moisture content, uneven distribution of moisture will result in induced eigen-stresses because of internal restraint Pages: In Table 1, convergence of the DQ code together with comparison of the critical shear buckling loads with those based on the FE modelling as well as the closed-from approximation are presented for the LVL and plywood sheathing panels with different comparisons are provided for both extreme edge conditions of clamped and simply supportedAuthor: Seyed Rasoul Atashipour, Seyed Rasoul Atashipour, Ulf Arne Girhammar.
