Prepared by the Task Committee on Fasteners of the Committee on Wood of the Structural Division of ASCE

This Manual of Practice presents current design practices and research on mechanical fasteners used in wood connections in the United States and abroad. Chapters review a vast array of connections, including nails, spikes, and staples; lag screws and wood screws; bolts, drift bolts, and pins; metal connector plates; and timber connectors. For each type of connection, basic design criteria, fabrication practices, installation, connection details, and the research basis of the design practices are addressed.

MOP 84 will assist structural engineers and design professionals in applying engineering judgment for many connection details not covered by standard design codes.
