Title (EN) NON-PRISMATIC GROOVED SHANK FASTENER
(FR) FIXATION À TIGE RAINURÉE NON PRISMATIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Non-prismatic shank fasteners, such as nails, for wood and similar soft materials have a plurality of longitudinal extending non-congruent sections (3, 4, 5, 6, 18) having different geometries, different configurations, and varying diameters such that the shank (2) has the widest nominal diameter (D) arranged to span a joint (502, 601, 602,701) between wood members (101, 102, 500, 501, 603, 605, 607, 702, 704) being fastened. The shank has four circumferentially symmetrically disposed grooves (9) and ridges (10) having dimensions within pre-determined ranges such that the ridges have sufficient strength to withstand the forces imposed on the shank being driven into the parent material and to resist loads imposed upon them by the loads to the parent material. The grooves have a sufficiently wide jaw opening (8143) to allow elastically compressed parent material to enter the groove and provide support to the shank. The non-prismatic grooved shanks demonstrate significantly greater load handling capability than that possessed by other known types of fasteners.
(FR)Fixations à tige non prismatiques, du type clous, pour matériaux mous en bois et similaires, ayant plusieurs parties non congruentes d'extension longitudinale (3, 4, 5, 6, 18) de géométries différentes, configurations différentes et diamètres variables, de sorte que la tige (2) ait le diamètre nominal maximum (D) couvrant une jonction (502, 601, 602, 701) entre pièces de bois (101, 102, 500, 501, 603, 605, 607, 702, 704) à fixer. La tige comporte quatre rainures à positionnement circonférentiel symétrique (9) et des crêtes de dimensions dans des gammes préétablies, de sorte que les crêtes aient une résistance suffisante pour résister aux forces appliquées sur la tige introduite dans le matériau parent et résister aux charges appliquées sur le matériau parent. Les rainures ont une ouverture de mâchoire suffisamment large (8143) pour permettre au matériau parent subissant une compression élastique de pénétrer dans ces rainures et de constituer un support pour la tige. Les tiges considérées offrent une capacité d'absorption de charge largement supérieure à celle des autres types de fixations connus.
