DescriptionThis study reviewed the literature on experimental and analytical research for the connection of wood members using multiple laterally loaded bolts. From this, the influence of geometric factors were ascertained, such as staggered and aligned fasteners, optimum fastener configurations, row factors and length-to-diameter bolt ratios, spacing, end and edge distances, and the effect of mixed types and sizes of fasteners and eccentric loading. Areas of additional research needed on multiple-bolted joints in wood members are identified.
