Nailing Schedule Calculations

Nailing or fastening schedules can be quantified by using the shear, tensile, and compressive strength properties of screws, bolts, nails, and other fasteners - and by considering the properties of the materials that the fasteners are fastening.

Details such as the material of the fastener, its fastening method (clamping, friction, tension, tensegrity, compression, gluing, granular friction, or any combinatin), environmental conditions, and installation methods are considered.

Calculating loads imposed upon, and loads sustained by, is a critical aspect of this analysis. This page discusses how to do first-principle calculations, as well as how to use tables to figure out fastener schedules.

In OSE's Fellowship Program - we train individuals to start OSE Campuses in various locations. In the OSE Mentorship program, we help people start enterprise. The Fellowship program requires first-principle reasoning knowledge, while the Mentorship program only requires the use of the results.
