Analytical Studies on the Nonlinear Bending Behavior of Nailed Layered Components: Part I. Nailed Layered Beams

Fumio Kamiya


The objective of this study is to develop a basic theory for the analysis of the nonlinear bending behavior of nailed layered components. For the analytical procedure, a numerical repetitive calculation using an electronic computer is needed. A simple procedure to predict the approximate behavior without the computer is also presented. The validity of the procedures is examined by conducting experiments. Both procedures give excellent agreements with the experimental results.
