As compared to the cumulative energy dissipated by joints with flush-driven nails, reductions due to nail overdriving were 20, 40, and 44 percent joints with nails overdriven to depths of 1.6, 3.2, and 4.8 mm, respectively.
T-Drive enables the user to specify these differential limits and still utilize thermal overdriving to improve productivity.
Reduction in displacement capacity due to overdriving is 38, 60, and 77 percent for cooler nail joints overdriven 1/16, 1/8, and 3/16 inch, respectively (compared to joints flush driven with cooler nails).
