Is OSB as strong as plywood?

Wood fiber is used more efficiently in OSB . OSB is stronger than plywood in shear. Shear values, through its thickness, are about 2 times greater than plywood.This is one of the reasons osb is used for webs of wooden I-joists. However, nail-holding ability controls performance in shear wall applications.
