Title:Structural Calculations and Performance Data for Nail-Glued Headers
Author(s):Jones, Rudard A.; Percival, Donald H.; Sapp, Dennis
Building materials
Abstract:This report was prepared for the purpose of compiling within one publication all the pertinent, analytical and empirical design information accumulated by the Small Homes Council - Building Research Council in its preparation of "NailGlued headers for larger Openings - Instruction Sheet #22." It consists of four parts as follows: Part I--Description of Headers is a description of the headers according to type, grade of lumber and plywood, type of glue, gluing procedure, and the final physical make-up of the finished headers. Part II--Design is a discussion of the structural analysis of all the header types. This includes statements of the fundamental design assumptions, the actual design of the headers, sources of allowable stresses, and final bearing and shear checks under working loads. Part III--Testing includes the procedures used in carrying out the performance tests and a discussion of the results of these tests. Also included is a description of long-duration loading tests. These latter tests were still underway at the time of the writing of this report. Part IV--Utilization is a discussion of possible uses for the headers aside from those uses on Instruction Sheet #22.
