1.1 These test methods cover procedures for evaluating the strength and stiffness of single-bolted connections in wood or wood-base products when subjected to static loading. These test methods serve as a basis for determining the effects of various factors on the strength and stiffness of the connection.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 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.
