    Timber Design for the Civil and Structural PE Exams is a comprehensive study guide that uses the inductive teaching method to help readers apply the ASD/LRFD national Design Specifications to realistic problem scenarios, and understand the design theories the solving methods are based on. Design examples and scenario-based practice problems will help you apply what you learn, whether you are preparing for the Civil PE or Structural Engineering (SE) exams, are a student in a timber design course, or are a practicing engineer.

    Note: The Civil PE structural depth and the SE exam codes and standards have changed as of October 2014. You can reference the current Civil PE Exam specifications and codes here, and the current SE exam specifications and codes here. While specific codes, equations, or values may change from one edition of a design or reference standard to the next, PPI’s books continue to provide an appropriate overview of the design concepts presented, and will prepare you for the 2015 exams.

    ISBN:  978-19-3603-925-8
    Page Count:    6
    Format:    Booklet
    Dimensions:    8 1/2 x 11
    Authors:    Structures and Codes Institute

    New.

    This CodeMaster contains information about designing typical wood framing members, including glued laminated timber, in accordance with the 2012 IBC, ASCE 7-10 and 2012 National Design Specification. This handy laminated guide explains the design process in ten easy-to-understand steps beginning with determining loads and load combinations. Determination of referenced design values for different sizes, species and grades is clearly explained and adjustment factors are presented in a consolidated manner for quick reference, with a matrix indicating when they are required.

    The CodeMaster includes steps for checking stresses and sizing the member; design equations are presented in a clear understandable format with notation defined. Numerous illustrations are provided to show key concepts such as tributary area, span measurement for sloped members, and dressed size versus nominal size. "Secrets of the CodeMaster" are included to help the designer avoid common mistakes.

    A Quick and Easy Reference for Designing Typical Wood Framing Members

    • Illustrations provide clarity on codes described.
    • Solved examples make it easy to understand the information presented.
