Failure modes (j) and (k) are not compatible with Fv.Rk.1.2 and are not considered (10.7 (EC5, 8.1.3(2)))

Minimum value for shear plane 2 per bolt, Fv.Rk.2.3

Shear plane 2 strength assessment (based on the 3,2,3 joint configuration):

Double shear joint formed from members 3,2,3. For a timber-to-timber joint with a bolt in double shear, the characteristic lateral resistance per shear plane is the smallest value of equations (10.7)-(10.10) in Table 10.2 (EC5, equations (8.7)), where:

Ratio of the embedment strength of fi2.3 = /h'e'2'3'b'k fi2.3 = 0.77

member 2 to member 3, p2.3

Failure mode (g): iV.Rk.i.b = /h.e.3.2.b.k ■ h ■ d

Fv.Rk.i.b = 13.05 kN Failure mode (h): Fv.Rk.2.b = 0.5 ■ /h.e.2.3.b.k ■ t2 ■ d

Minimum value for shear plane per bolt

Fv.Rk.3.2 = min(Fv.Rk.i.b, Fv.Rk.2.b) Fv.Rk.3.2 = 6.4kN (mode (h))

Strength of shear plane 2 (based on the minimum value for 2,3,2 and 3,2,3 configurations):

Minimum characteristic strength of shear Fv.Rk.2.3.f = min(Fv.Rk.2.3, Fv Rk.3.2) plane 2 per bolt, Fv.Rk.2.3.f

Fv Rk.2 3.f = 6.4 kN (mode (h) in configuration 3,2,3)

Effective number of bolts acting in shear plane 2, n:

Design capacity of shear plane 2 based on n bolts, Fv.Rd.sp.2

Fv.Rd.sp.2 = - ' Fv.Rk.2.3.f ' n Fv.Rd.sp.2 = 7.88 KN
