Standard Test Method for Shear Strength Properties of Metal Connector Plates (Withdrawn 2005)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
|ICS Code (Mechanical testing of metals):||77.040.10|
1.1 This test method provides a basic procedure for evaluating the effective shear resistance of the net section of finished metal connector plates.
1.2 The determination of the tensile properties of metal connector plates is covered in Test Method E489.
1.3 Test Methods D1761 covers the performance of the teeth and nails in the wood members during the use of metal connector plates.
1.4 This test method serves as a basis for determining the comparative performance of different types and sizes of metal connector plates resisting shear forces.
1.5 This test method provides a procedure for quantifying shear strength properties of metal connector plates and is not intended to establish design values for connections fabricated with these plates.
1.6 This test method does not provide for the corrosion testing of metal connector plates exposed to long-term adverse environmental conditions where plate deterioration occurs as a result of exposure. Under such conditions, special provisions shall be introduced for the testing for corrosion resistance.
1.7 In the case of dispute, the inch-pound units, shown in parentheses, shall be governing.
1.8 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
