Abstract : This report presents the results of research conducted at the Forest Products Laboratory to study the performance of bolted joints that are similar to the gusset plate or tension splice joints used in joining the lower chord members of a timber truss. The joints were three-member assemblies consisting of a 3-1/4- by 7-1/2-inch laminated Douglas-fir member and two steel side plates with two rows of four bolts acting in double shear parallel to the grain of the wood.
