In the case of the Douglas-fir, red elm, white ash, and southern yellow-poplar 2-inch tenons, the 5 percent yield load averaged 73 percent of ultimate load capacity.
In addition, specimens with round cross sections were constructed from small-diameter red elm (R-Elm), white ash (W-Ash), and red oak (R-Oak) tree stems.
Joints constructed from yellow-poplar, therefore, would be expected to have higher load capacity than those constructed from northern pines, and those constructed from red elm would have higher capacity than those constructed from yellow-poplar.
