Floor Panel Bears on Column at Bracket
Roof or floor panel bears on steel brackets connected to the side of the wood column with dowel-type fasteners. Positive connection of the floor panel is made with partially-threaded screws.
Purpose: Transfer of vertical load from floor panels to wood column.
- Capacity is controlled by perpendicular-to-grain bearing capacity of floor or roof panel, or shear capacity of the bracket attachment.
- This connection is unique to single-point support of mass timber panels with two-way span capability such as CLT or SCL-CLT.
- Constructability can be affected by the need for temporary bracing of column.
- Designer must account for eccentricity between load and reaction.
- Class 2
