ASTM D5652-21 - Standard Test Methods for Single-Bolt Connections in Wood and Wood-Based Products
Standard Test Methods for Single-Bolt Connections in Wood and Wood-Based Products
|bolts; bolted connections; initial stiffness; wood; wood-based materials;
1.1 These test methods cover procedures for evaluating the strength and stiffness of single-bolt connections in wood or wood-based products when subjected to short-term static loading. These test methods serve as a basis for determining the effects of various factors on the strength and stiffness of the connection. Long-term loading and creep displacement characteristics are outside the scope of this protocol.
1.2 These test methods are intended for situations employing a smooth shank bolt with a constant diameter.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
