Report of an extensive testing program by Daniel H. Brown, P.E., conducted at the APA Research Center. The report covers Wood Structural Panel Diaphragms and Shear Walls Fastened with Aerosmith Steel Pins. This report was one of the major documents supporting the issuance of ER-5667 (above). Intended for the use of architects and engineers. Copies are available from Aerosmith.
A report by Reynaud Serrette, Ph.D. of the Light Gauge Steel Research Group at Santa Clara University. The report explores the structural and economical benefits of using Henkel Loctite adhesives and Aerosmith Fasteners in light frame shear wall construction. The implications of the report are significant in the construction of 2' X 8' steel sheet shear walls, which will provide greater building design flexibility.
