Design of Wood Structures
Advances in wood construction technology have required more exacting building codes. This updated edition provides state-of-the-art information on the properties and application of wood building materials and the design techniques for building permanent wood structures. All design criteria presented meet the current standards established by the Uniform Building Code (UBC) and the National Design Specification for Wood Construction (NDS). In addition, this reference is unique in providing thorough, integrated coverage of the principles involved in calculating gravity loads and lateral loads. The book takes a practical approach with fully worked numerical examples illustrating design solutions included throughout the text. This extensively revised and updated third edition features important new material on: Calculating gravity loads and lateral loads, including advanced techniques for understanding earthquake forces; Understanding the behavior of wood frame structures under gravity loads and lateral loads; Determining the properties and uses of particular lumber grades; Utilizing new integrated procedures for beam design; Applying innovative formulas for designing structures subject to axial and bending forces; Designing wood connections based on yield model theory.
