Abstract [en]

This study evaluated the fatigue performance of T-shaped, end-to-side, metal-plated joints made of 18-mm (23/32-in) structural oriented strandboard (OSB) to obtain the static-to- fatigue moment capacity ratios. A total of 80 joints with metal plates of different configurations were subjected to one-side cyclic stepped bending loads. Test results showed that assem- blies with OSB metal-plates would fail within 25,000 cycles when a stepped load level exceeded 63 percent of their static moment capacity. The passing static-to-fatigue ratios aver- aged 2.5 with a COV of 22 percent. In all metal-plated joints, the dominating failure mode was metal-plate yield; the rest was shear-out of OSB.
