Stiffness Considerations for Custom Bearing Beam Hangers

This white paper explores the role of stiffness in designing a custom bearing beam hanger system for mass timber buildings, emphasizing on the importance of testing and verifying the design capacity of even the simplest connectors.

Test results for a custom bearing beam hanger designed by MTC Solutions reveal the challenges in accurately predicting the actual deformation response of a beam hanger system using only theoretical formulas, owing to the complexity of each component.

This document highlights the benefits of using pre-engineered beam hanger systems that have undergone extensive testing to eliminate unpredictable deformation responses.
