The load-bearing capacity of a timber member loaded perpendicular-to-grain by connections is governed by either the connection (in terms of embedment strength and the bending yield strength of the steel dowel-type fasteners), or by the splitting strength of the timber. In addition, conventional failure mechanisms such as bending and shear of the primary beam may occur, which also limit the load-bearing capacity. A comprehensive work into both connection-induced fracture and failure mechanisms shows that improvements in the design rules used in building practice are preferred and sometimes necessary to effectuate sufficient safety (Schoenmakers (2010)).
