Short beam strength?

  1. Apr 19, 2009 #1
    I am trying to calculate the "short beam strength [tex](\sigma_{sbs})[/tex]" of Liquid Nails (a wood adhesive). I did a strength test of two square beams held together by the Liquid Nails and recorded the data. I also have data of a strength test of one of the wooden beams by itself.

    How would I go about calculating the short beam strength of this polymer? I know there is a way to extract it from the data I have, but I'm unsure of what equations to use and how to arrive at the number.
