Truss Plate Manufacturers (TPMs), who use their own computer programs to design trusses.
WTCA (formerly the Wood Truss Council of America) and TPI (the Truss Plate Institute) have introduced the 2006 edition of Building Component Safety Information (BCSI): Guide to Good Practice for Handling, Installing, Restraining, and Bracing of Metal Plate Connected Wood Trusses.
A study was conducted to compare the toughness, bending modulus of rupture (MOR), bending modulus of elasticity (MOE), and truss plate connector grip capacity in tension, between wood infected with blue stain transmitted by the mountain pine beetle and non-stained wood.
The Wood Truss Council of America (WTCA) and the Truss Plate Institute (TPI) have announced the latest addition to their truss tag series--the Jobsite tag.
Ultimate moment capacity is a function of truss chord thickness and depth, wood ultimate compressive strength, thickness and width of truss plate, tension efficiency ratio for the truss plate, and ultimate tensile strength of the truss plate steel if tension loading is set to zero.
The Truss Plate Institute (TPI) and the Wood Truss Council of America (WTCA) have produced a new and improved guide for jobsite safety and truss performance.
These forces can cause failure of the end plate if they exceed the tensile strength of the steel or the lateral resistance strength of the teeth; these failure modes are similar to some of the failure modes for truss plate connectors.
The Truss Plate Institute (TPI) recently updated its national design standards and added a provision submitted by WWPA to permit the use of finger-jointed lumber in metal-plate-connected wood trusses.
Gaps that occur between the lower surface of a metal truss plate and the wood surface can significantly reduce connection lateral resistance.
