Newly updated--the most accessible, thorough introduction to the basics of wood structure design
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 continuous publication for over sixty 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.
Written to be easily understood by readers with limited experience in engineering mechanics, structural analysis, or advanced mathematics, the book now features:
Consideration of the LRFD method of structural design in addition to the ASD method
Updated coverage conforming to current building codes, design practices, and industry standards
Expanded treatment of wood products beyond sawn lumber
More examples and a wider sweep of systems and products
Equally suited to classroom use or independent study, Simplified Design of Wood Structures, Sixth 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 simple, concise solutions to common structural and environmental design problems for more than seven decades.
