ASTM E1190

Full Name

ASTM E1190 – Standard Test Methods for Strength of Power-Actuated Fasteners Installed in Structural Members


These test methods describe procedures for determining the static axial tensile and shear strengths of power-actuated fasteners installed in structural members made of concrete, concrete masonry, and steel.

These test methods are intended for use with fasteners that are installed perpendicular to a plane surface of the structural member.

Tests for combined tension and shear, fatigue, dynamic, and torsional load resistance are not covered.
