Design of wood structures ASD/LRFD

Design of wood structures ASD/LRFD 

Donald Breyer

Preference :

The purpose of this book is to introduce engineers, technologists, and architects to the design of wood
structures. It is designed to serve either as a text for a course in timber design or as a reference for systematic self-study of the subject.
The book will lead the reader through the complete design of a wood structure (except for the foundation).
The sequence of the material follows the same general order that it would in actual design:
1. Vertical design loads and lateral forces
2. Design for vertical loads (beams and columns)
3. Design for lateral forces (horizontal diaphragms and shearwalls)
4. Connection design (including the overall tying together of the vertical- and lateral-force-resisting systems)
