On the flip side, because the calculations behind the balance sheet numbers are marked-to-market, they tend to provide the most objective basis for investment-related activities, such as monthly or quarterly reporting in connection with a liability-driven investing program, and they may serve as the basis for an LRAA
Lumber samples selected from TimberTruss Housing Systems were cut to proper length and test specimens were cut for LRAA and LREA configurations (Fig.
However, for the LRAA orientation, a p-value of 0.096 was obtained indicating a non-uniform residual variance.
It may be deduced from Figures 2 and 3 that the predicted embedment gap for any given SG is higher for the LRAA orientation compared to the LREA orientation.
For the LRAA and LREA orientations, the average embedment gap was 0.0377 and 0.0322 inch, respectively.
Results of this statistical analysis (Table 2) show that the embedment gap did significantly influence ultimate load capacity for the LRAA orientation.
For the LRAA orientation, a 1/32-inch embedment gap resulted in a mean 8 percent decrease in ultimate load.
For the LRAA orientation, embedment gap and SG significantly influenced ultimate load.
