Basic Theory and Behavior of Inclined Screws
Rewatch MTC Solutions’ webinar from 2018 where was detailed the advantages of creating shear connections with inclined fully threaded screws, including applications in mass timber structure. The theory behind inclined screw connections is explained through a brief overview of some of the research conducted in the USA, Canada, and in Europe. This presentation also compares design procedures calibrated as per the NDS 2018 guidelines with recent lab testing in North America.
