Description: Virginia Tech, in cooperation with the NWPCA and the Southern Research Station of the USDA Forest Service, conducted a research program on the use of metal plates for repair of stringer pallets. This study looked at common stringer failure locations: splits between the notches, splits above the notches, and splits in the end feet. One of the research objectives was to evaluate the effectiveness of different styles of metal plates to restore the bending strength, stiffness, and impact resistance of broken stringers.
