This fourth edition of the text incorporates changes and additions to the major codes concerning the use of wood in building design. The focus of the new sections of the text will be on Allowable Stress Design (ASD). The leading wood design reference includes the latest codes and specifications. Continuing the sterling standard set by earlier editions, this indispensable reference demonstrates the best wood design procedures and techniques for safe handling of gravity and lateral loads. Thoroughly revised and updated through the 1997 Uniform Building Code and National Design Specifications, this best-seller gives practicing designers of wood structures, constructionprofessionals, and students clear step-by-step directions and illustrations for all relevant procedures. In these pages, you'll find: the latest changes to the major codes relating to the use of wood frames in building design, including the 1997 NDS and the 1997 UBC; illustrated design solutions, focusing on the latest Allowable Stress Design (ASD) methodology for timber structure design; updated information on wind and seismic loads; the latest techniques and code standards for the use of nailed and stapled connections; anchorages; and bolts, lag bolts, and timber connections; thorough analysis of thecharacteristics and design properties of glue-laminated timber and plywood; clear explanations and worked examples using near source factors and the reliability/redundancy factor. The leading reference in lateral force design, this fourth edition of Design of Wood Structures will be the sourcebook of choice for designers, engineers,architects, and other construction professionals for many years to come.
