Measuring and estimating shear force of one stapled and one-row multi stapled wood joints
Keywords:Alder, beech, lateral shear, staple, Scots pine
Since staple is the most used fastener in furniture frame, its holding capacity in solid wood joints is need to be known. Therefore, lateral shear resistance capacity of one stapled and one-row multi stapled joints constructed from Scotch pine, alder, and beech were investigated. Results showed that the joints constructed from beech with a density of 0,54 gr/cm3 yielded 4893 N, the 4 staples joints constructed from alder with a density of 0,51 gr/cm3 yielded 4487 N, and the 4 staples joints constructed from Scotch pine with a density of 0,45 gr/cm3 yielded 3498 N. Three and two staples connected joints also indicated decreasing trend when changing wood from beech to alder and Scotch pine. Results also indicated that increasing number of staple from 2 to 4 in one-row joints increased force of the joints. Two prediction formulas were derived to predict the shear of one-row multi stapled wood joints. Both formulas yielded remarkable results compared to actual laboratory test results.
