Shear Strength


Measured by the push or pull against the side of a fastener until the fastener breaks (for example, moving an object continually against the side of a screw that is protruding from a wall). As a rule of thumb, shear strength is two-thirds of tensile strength.

DOUBLE SHEAR STRENGTH is applying a load against the fastener in two places causing the fastener to break into three pieces.
