Characteristic headside pull-through strength, /head.k (equation (10.59) (EC5, (8.26)) (The equation incorporates dimensional factors for Mathcad.)

m kg

Characteristic withdrawal capacity of nail, Fax>Rk, is lesser of equations (10.57)

Rk1 = fP ax.k ' d ' tpoint and Fax.Rk2 = /hax.k ' d ' t1 + Zhead.k ' dh therefore Fax.Rk = min(Fax.Rk1, Fax.Rk2)

Ex.Rk! = 36.88 N Fax.Rk2 = 651.17N Fax.Rk = 36.88 N

10. Load-carrying capacity of the connection

For a timber-to-timber joint with nails in single shear, the characteristic lateral resistance per shear plane is the lesser of equations (10.1) to (10.6) in Table 10.2 (EC5, equations (8.6)) where

Failure mode (a):
