Does Technical Report 12 - General Dowel Equations for Calculating Lateral Connection Values assume the connector does not deform in the gap?

Yes, the assumption is that the connector will develop a hinge in the body of either the main member or side member(s), not in the gap.

The following FAQ is based on the presentation of DES330 – Design of Connections for Wood Members using the NDS and TR12.
