Abstract [en]

This paper deals with theoretical and experimental investigations of nailed steel plate connections. For the experimental part, a total of 99 laboratory tests have been carried out in order to study failure mechanism and shear capacity of nailed steel plate connections. The testing programme comprised two nail lengths, two steel plate thicknesses and five nailing patterns. All tests related to loading of the plate in the direction of the grain of the wood. The nail patterns were designed to give ductile joint failure by yielding of the nails and/or bearing failure of the wood. The failure load was recorded and the mode and course of failure noted. For some of the specimens, deformation of the nails during loading was studied by means of an X-ray equipment.Deviations between the test results and contemporary consensus as manifested in the SS-EN 1995-1-1:2004 and the Johansen theory for ductile failure were found in several respects: development of the plastic hinges in the nails, influence of nail length, steel plate thickness and nail-to-nail and edge distances.The paper also presents an empirical equation based on multiple regression analysis of the test results was proposed as an attempt to predict the load-carrying capacity of nailed connections in shear.
