Loaded at an angle to the grain

When connectors are laterally loaded at an angle to the grain, the force components parallel and perpendicular to the grain have to be derived, and:

(i) the component of the design force acting parallel to the grain must not exceed the load-carrying capacity of the connection determined as defined in 11.8.1, and

(ii) the component of the design force acting perpendicular to the grain must not exceed the lesser of load-carrying capacity of the connection determined as defined of the load-carrying capacity in 11.8.2.
