Wood is the major building material in residential structures. This work reflects the 2006 Building Code, NDS standards, and ASCE load standard. It is aimed at civil engineers and architects, and students.
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—thoroughly revised with the latest codes and data Fully updated to cover the latest techniques and standards, the eighth edition of this comprehensive resource leads you through the complete design of a wood structure following the same sequence used in the actual design/construction process. Detailed equations, clear illustrations, and practical design examples are featured throughout the text. This up-to-date edition conforms to both the 2018 International Building Code (IBC) and the 2018 National Design Specification for Wood Construction (NDS). Design of Wood Structures-ASD/LRFD, Eighth Edition, covers:•Wood buildings and design criteria•Design loads•Behavior of structures under loads and forces•Properties of wood and lumber grades•Structural glued laminated timber•Beam design and wood structural panels•Axial forces and combined loading•Diaphragms and shearwalls•Wood and nailed connections•Bolts, lag bolts, and other connectors•Connection details and hardware•Diaphragm-to-shearwall anchorage•Requirements for seismically irregular structures•Residential buildings with wood light frames
Anyone involved with structural design, whether a student or a practicing engineer, must maintain a functional understanding of wood, steel, and concrete design principles. In covering all of these materials, Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete fills a gap that exists in the instructional resources. It provides a self-contained authoritative source that elaborates on the most recent practices together with the code-connected fundamentals that other books often take for granted. Dr. Ram Gupta, a professional engineer, provides readers with insights garnered over a highly active 40-year international career. Organized for ready reference, the book is divided into four main sections. Part I covers loads, load combinations, and specific code requirements for different types of loads. It elaborates on the LRFD (load resistance factor design) philosophy and the unified approach to design. Part II covers sawn lumber, structural glued laminated timber, and structural composite lumber. It reviews tension, compression, and bending members, as well as the effects of column and beam stabilities and combined forces. Part III considers the steel design of individual tension, compression, and bending members. Additionally, it provides designs for braced and unbraced frames. Open-web steel joists and joist girders are included here as they form a common type of flooring system for steel-frame buildings. Part IV analyzes the design of reinforced beams and slabs, shear and torsion, compression and combined compression, and flexure in relation to basic concrete structures. This textbook presents the LRFD approach for designing structural elements according to the latest codes. Written for architecture and construction management majors, it is equally suitable for civil and structural engineers.
Building, Wooden by American Forest & Paper Association
The 2005 Edition of the National Design Specification for Wood Construction was approved as an American National Standard on January 6, 2005. The 2005 NDS was developed as a dual format specification incorporating design provisions for both allowable stress design (ASD) and load and resistance factor design (LRFD). The NDS is adopted in all model building codes in the U.S. and is used to design wood structures worldwide.
No architect′s education would be complete without a basic understanding of how structures respond to the action of forces and how these forces affect the performance of various building material (wood, steel, concrete, etc.). In continous publication for over 60 years, this standard guide to structural design with wood has now been updated to include current design practices, standards, and consideration of new wood products. Now covering the LRFD method of structural design in addition to the ASD method, expanded treatment of wood products besides sawn lumber, and with more examples and exercise problems, this edition stands as a valuable resource that no architect or builder should be without. The Parker/Ambrose Series of Simplified Design Guides has been providing students with simple, concise solutions to common structural and environmental design problems for more than seven decades.
This text provides a concise and practical guide to timber design, using both the Allowable Stress Design and the Load and Resistance Factor Design methods. It suits students in civil, structural, and construction engineering programs as well as engineering technology and architecture programs, and also serves as a valuable resource for the practicing engineer. The examples based on real-world design problems reflect a holistic view of the design process that better equip the reader for timber design in practice. This new edition now includes the LRFD method with some design examples using LRFD for joists, girders and axially load members. is based on the 2015 NDS and 2015 IBC model code. includes a more in-depth discussion of framing and framing systems commonly used in practice, such as, metal plate connected trusses, rafter and collar tie framing, and pre-engineered framing. includes sample drawings, drawing notes and specifications that might typically be used in practice. includes updated floor joist span charts that are more practical and are easy to use. includes a chapter on practical considerations covering topics like flitch beams, wood poles used for footings, reinforcement of existing structures, and historical data on wood properties. includes a section on long span and high rise wood structures includes an enhanced student design project
The ASD/LRFD Manual contains design information for structural lumber, glued laminated timber, structural-use panels, shear walls and diaphragms, poles and piles, I-joists, structural composite lumber, metal plate connected wood trusses, and pre-engineered metal connectors. Over 40 details are included in the chapter on connections. A comprehensive chapter on fire design includes fire rated wall and floor assemblies for solid sawn lumber, I-joists, and trusses.
The prime purpose of this book is to serve as a design is of considerable value in helping the classroom text for the engineering or architec student make the transition from the often sim ture student. It will, however, also be useful to plistic classroom exercises to problems of the designers who are already familiar with design real world.
