Wood Screws - Withdrawal Forces

Allowable withdrawal load force

Sponsored Links

Allowable withdrawal load or force of a common wood screw into side grain perpendicular to the fibers of seasoned dry wood can be expressed as

F = 2850 SG2 D                   (1)

where

F = allowable withdrawal load or force - lb per inch of penetration (lb/in)

SG = specific gravity of oven dry wood

D = diameter of screw (in)

Wood screws - shank diameters and pitot holes

Example - Screw Withdrawal Load

The specific gravity of Canadian Spruce is 0.45. The diameter of no. 10 screw is 0.190 inches. The withdrawal force per inch of penetration can be estimated as

F = 2850 (0.45)2 (0.190 in)

   =  109 lb per inch of penetration
