Info

(a) Percentage of axial load to comply redax = with the axial strength condition

(b) Percentage of axial load to comply redn = with the nail strength condition

i.e. the section is not acceptable

The load to be taken by each fastener bending about the z-z axis, F1 (equation (8.13); EC5, equation (B.10))

F1 — 710.05N Fv.Rd — 421N i.e. not acceptable redax = 79.03%

Comparison with the strength of the same column, but glued rather than nailed, as given in Example 8.8.1:
