The effects were determined of several variables on the lateral strength and stiffness of three-member nailed joints in radiata pine. Pre-drilling generally increased strength and stiffness, particularly in dry timber. The strength and stiffness of joints with nails in double shear were generally not twice the values given by joints with nails in single shear. An increase of 25% in design loads for joints in green timber is satisfactory for joints in dry timber. It was found that the strength of the dry joints could be predicted with reasonable accuracy from basic properties of the timber and nails.
