Description

The latest New Zealand non-specific design code for light timber frame houses defines the minimum required strength of the connection between joist and bearer/s at each braced pile or anchor pile. The connection is required to resist a horizontal force totalling 12kN, applied parallel to the bearer at the diaphragm level. These horizontal forces tend to roll joists over onto the bearer below. The potential cost in providing mechanisms to resist joist roll-over forces has caused some concern in the building industry. Consequently, some simple and cheap methods which satisfy the requirements of the code have been investigated. This report describes this work. A draft BRANZ Technical Recommendation is also presented which details recommended construction methods to resist joist roll-over action.
