Structural behaviour of timber to timber joist hangers

Abstract

A series of tests have been carried out to identify the factors influencing the response load and ultimate failure mode of timber-to-timber joist hangers. A Taguchi methodology was used to ensure that all factors were studied and analysis of variance was used to determine significant factors. Nail length, hanger thickness, nail angle and the number of nails were found to be significant with hanger thickness being the most significant factor at moderate deflections. It was found that the ultimate failure mode was determined by nail length, hanger material thickness and the number of nails used.
