Where can I find information on wood dowel (wood peg) design values?


Fall '04 ed. of Wood Design Focus, "Considerations for Mortise and Tenon Joint Design." For more information, visit http://www.forestprod.org/

3/97 edition of the Journal of Structural Engineering, "Characterization of Bearing Strength Factors in Pegged Timber Connections" (p.326-332). Available at http://www.asce.org/

Winter '92 edition of Wood Design Focus, "Assessing Capacities of Traditional Timber Connections" (p.17-21). For more information, visit http://www.forestprod.org/

A procedure for wood dowel connections has been drafted into the ICC 400 Log Structures Standard. It's based on work by Dr. Dick Schmidt at the University of Wyoming.
