This Standard specifies laboratory methods for determining the embedding strength of solid timber, glued laminated timber and wood-based sheet products with dowel-type fasteners. Includes tension tests with the fastener inserted into a hole in the timber, and a compression test with the fastener embedded in a shaped groove in the member.
The results of the compression test are the values that are appropriate for use with the planned adoption of the ‘European Yield Model’ in future revisions of the Australian/New Zealand timber design codes. Identical to and reproduced from ISO 10984-2:2009.
