Timber Engineering Book Excerpt:

Timber construction is one of the most prevalent methods of constructing buildings in North America and an increasingly significant method of construction in Europe and the rest of the world. Timber Engineering deals not only with the structural aspects of timber construction, structural components, joints and systems based on solid timber and engineered wood products, but also material behaviour and properties on a wood element level. Produced by internationally renowned experts in the field, this book represents the state of the art in research on the understanding of the material behaviour of solid wood and engineered wood products. There is no comparable compendium currently available on the topic - the subjects represented include the most recent phenomena of timber engineering and the newest development of practice-related research. Grouped into three different sections, 'Basic properties of wood-based structural elements', 'Design aspects on timber structures' and 'Joints and structural assemblies', this book focuses on key issues in the understanding of: timber as a modern engineered construction material with controlled and documented properties the background for design of structural systems based on timber and engineered wood products the background for structural design of joints in structural timber systems Furthermore, this invaluable book contains advanced teaching material for all technical schools and universities involved in timber engineering. It also provides an essential resource for timber engineering students and researchers, as well as practicing structural and civil engineers.

Sustainable Timber Design Book Excerpt:

This new resource covers the material selection, structural design and connections detailing of truly sustainable timber buildings through: consideration of the nature of wood and the heritage of timber construction, including the importance of forestry and conservation a review of modern techniques to improve the durability, fire resistance and predictability of structural timber elements and their vital connections analysis of the many architectural and structural options, from roundwood shells through glulam arches and gridshells to long span hybrid structures case studies from around the world illustrating the principles discussed and the true potential of timber construction Historically there has been an imbalance between the availability of information on structural timber design and the much more widespread familiarity with traditional structural materials such as steel and concrete. This book aims to help redress the balance by presenting the essential design principles involved in the creation of elegant, user-friendly timber buildings that are practical, economic, and thoroughly sustainable. Designed to support specialist study into the benefits of 21st Century timber engineering, this book also offers architects, engineers and other construction professionals practical advice on all aspects of modern timber architecture.

Structural Wood Design Book Excerpt:

A simple, practical, and concise guide to timber design To fully understand structural design in wood, it is not sufficient to consider the individual components in isolation. Structural Wood Design: A Practice-Oriented Approach Using the ASD Method offers an integrative approach to structural wood design that considers the design of the individual wood members in the context of the complete wood structure so that all of the structural components and connectors work together in providing strength. Holistic, practical, and code-based, this text provides the reader with knowledge of all the essentials of structural wood design: Wood structural elements and systems that occur in wood structures Structural loads—dead, live, snow, wind, and seismic—and how to calculate loads acting on typical wood structures Glued-laminated lumber and allowable stresses for sawn lumber and Glulam The design and analysis of joists and girders Floor vibrations The design of wood members subjected to axial and bending loads Roof and floor sheathing and horizontal diaphrams Exterior wall sheathing and wood shear walls The design of connections and how to use the connection capacity tables in the NDS code Several easy-to-use design aids for the preliminary sizing of joists, studs, and columns In keeping with its hallmark holistic and practice-oriented approach, the book culminates in a complete building design case study that brings all the elements together in a total building system design. Conforming throughout to the 2005 National Design Specification (NDS) for Wood, Structural Wood Design will prepare students for applying the fundamentals of structural wood design to typical projects, and will serve as a handy resource for practicing engineers, architects, and builders in their everyday work.
