This fully updated, state-of-the-art guide to designing wood structures demonstrates all of the necessary steps and techniques, following the sequence of materials and elements in the order used in actual design.

Updated with the latest codes and standards, Design of Wood Structures, Seventh Edition introduces engineers, technologists, and architects to wood structure design. This practical resource leads you through the complete design of a wood structure—except for the foundation.

Coverage includes:

  • Vertical design loads and lateral forces
  • Design for vertical loads—beams and columns
  • Design for lateral forces—horizontal diaphragms and shear walls
  • Connection design—including the overall typing together of the vertical- and lateral-force-resisting systems
