Characteristic density of the timber, pk pk = 320kg/m3


Characteristic density of the plywood

3. Partial safety factors

Material factor for connections

4. Actions

Design action per metre length of the plywood at the support, Fax d

5. Modification factors

Factor for instantaneous duration loading and service class 3, £mod,inst (Table 2.4 (EC5, Table 3.1))

6. Tensile strength of the connection

Because there is no permanent or long-term axial loading on the connection, smooth nails can be used(EC5, 8.3.2(1))

Characteristic pointside withdrawal strength, /ax.k (10.8.1 (EC5, 8.3.2(6), (7)))

Assuming the connection may be in a condition where it is installed near its fibre saturation point. (The equation incorporates dimension factors for Mathcad.)
