Abstract [en]

Metal-plate connectors are commonly used to connect critical joints in upholstered furniture frames due to their high load resistance, rapid assembly, and easy connection of members with uniform thickness. To successfully introduce oriented strand- board (OSB) into furniture frames, basic data for metal-plated joints constructed of OSB is needed. In this study, static moment capacity of T-shaped joints with metal-plates was determined experimentally for different configurations. The moment capacity and stiffness of the joint with one pair of metal-plates increased in proportion with the width of the metal-plate up to 6-in (152 mm). When the metal-plate was equal the full width of the OSB member, too many teeth cut into it, making the assembly weaker. Metal-plated joints with two pairs of plates were nearly 50 percent stronger and stiffer than those with a single pair of metal-plates covering the same area.
