What is bearing area factor ?

The bearing area factor (Cb) is used to increase design values for concentrated loads on wood perpendicular to the grain. The factor applies to bearings of any length at the ends of the member, and to all bearings 6" or more in length at any other location. It is useful when high loads are present on washers, hangers, etc.

How to Calculate Bearing Area Factor?

Bearing Area Factor calculator uses Bearing area factor=((Bearing length+0.375)/Bearing length) to calculate the Bearing area factor, The Bearing Area Factor formula is used to increase design values for concentrated loads on wood perpendicular to the grain. Bearing area factor and is denoted by Cb symbol.

How to calculate Bearing Area Factor using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Bearing Area Factor, enter Bearing length (lb) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Bearing Area Factor calculation can be explained with given input values -> 126 = ((0.003+0.375)/0.003).

FAQ

What is Bearing Area Factor?
The Bearing Area Factor formula is used to increase design values for concentrated loads on wood perpendicular to the grain and is represented as Cb=((lb+0.375)/lb) or Bearing area factor=((Bearing length+0.375)/Bearing length). Bearing length is measured parallel to the grain.
How to calculate Bearing Area Factor?
The Bearing Area Factor formula is used to increase design values for concentrated loads on wood perpendicular to the grain is calculated using Bearing area factor=((Bearing length+0.375)/Bearing length). To calculate Bearing Area Factor, you need Bearing length (lb). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Bearing length and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
