Abstract [en]

Power-driven staples are commonly used to join framing members in upholstered furniture construction because of their quick and easy installation. To successfully introduce oriented strandboard (OSB) into upholstered furniture as frame stock, moment capacity data for stapled gusset-plate joints constructed of OSB are needed. In this study, the static moment capacity of T-shaped, end-to-side joints with two gusset-plates was determined experimentally and analytically for gusset-plates of different lengths (4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 inches) attached with 1.0-inch- and 1.5-inch-long staples with and without adhesive. The moment capacity of the joint increased in proportion with the length of the gusset-plate until the strength of the gusset exceeded that of the main joint member. Analytical prediction of the moment capacity of an unglued stapled joint was found satisfactory. Ap- plication of glue to the connection surface changed the failure modes of the joints and increased their moment resistance capacity.
