tenon

[′ten·ən]
(engineering)
A tonguelike projection from the end of a framing member which is made to fit into a mortise.

Tenon

The projecting end of a piece of wood or other material, reduced in cross section so that it may be inserted into a corresponding mortise in another piece to form a secure joint.

Tenon

 

(in Russian, ship), a projection on the end or lateral surface of a part, designed to be inserted into a recess or groove of corresponding shape and dimensions in another part. It can be used to effect a permanent or temporary joining of the parts. A tenon may be in one piece with an article, or it may be a separate insert (as a dowel). Joints made by a mortise and tenon are most often used in the manufacture of wooden structural elements (windows, doors, and the like), furniture, crates, and casting patterns. In machine building, end and face journals (pivots) are analogous to tenons; they usually have a cylindrical, conical, or spherical shape.

Pinning of the knee brace tenons was not addressed in this study.
These specimens were identical to the first set except that the tenons were offset and centered 0.
Thus, the bending moment capacity of the tenons themselves is estimated to be:
When the desired tenon depth was less than rail depth, top and bottom edges of the tenon were notched to produce the desired tenon depth.
For static tests, the above expression estimates that pinned tenons with cross pins half the diameter of the tenon have only [(0.
As used in modern times, mortise and tenon, dovetailing, tongue and groove and their many variations meet an important requirement for a strong joint: They present several surfaces where parts can be glued together along the grain.
All of the rail stock, dowels, and loose tenons were conditioned and maintained in an environmental chamber at 20 [degrees]C and 50 percent RH for 48 hours prior to machining.
The ultimate load capacity of the 3-inch diameter southern yellow pine tenons was essentially twice that of comparable 2-inch diameter tenons.
2 mm) diameter tenons on the ends of the center end-rail would also reduce bending moments on the top and bottom joints by more than 30 percent.
Most of the tests were conducted with 2-inch-diameter tenons, but a limited number of specimens with 3- and 4-inch- diameter tenons were included.
First, the king-post tenon and the end-rafter tenons intersect in the ridge beam.
In addition, tests were needed to determine whether cross-pinning of tenons is feasible, either as a back-up measure to enhance structural integrity in case of inadequate gluing or glue bond failure, or as a substitute for gluing in areas where adhesives may be unduly costly and in short supply.
