[GSBN] Screw/nail shear capacities in plaster

Hi GSBN,

Is anyone aware of any data or testing that has been done on the shear
capacities of various screws or nails driven into plaster (on a straw bale
wall)?

I'm not really going for structural load-bearing applications here... (not
sure that would be a good idea)
More along the lines of safely hanging a heavy piece of art on a SB wall.

Thanks,
