For the common joist end fastening methods studied in this project, including toe-nailing, direct nailing, and use of joist hangers, the assumption of rigid support leads to negligible errors in static deflection calculation.
In Figure 1a, toe-nails are used to fasten the joist end to a wall plate, whereas in Figure 1c direct nailing of the bottom flange of I-joists to the wall plate is shown.
Figures 2 through 5 show that there is a significant overlap for the support stiffness ranges for direct nailing, joist hanger and toe-nailing.
