    2015 Wood Design Package

    In Stock / Ships in one business day.

    Page Count:    338
    Dimensions:    8 1/2 x 11
    Authors:    American Wood Council (American Forest & Paper Assoc.)

    The 2015 Wood Design Package brings together all required elements for design of wood structures in one comprehensive document. It includes design information for wind and seismic conditions, sawn lumber, structural glued laminated timber, structural-use panels, shear walls and diaphragms, poles and piles, I-joists, structural composite lumber, structural connections (nails, bolts, screws), and cross-laminated timber. This package includes:

    • NDS for Wood Construction, 2015 Edition: ANSI/AWC NDS-2015 National Design Specification (NDS) for Wood Construction was approved as an ANSI American National Standard on September 30, 2014. The 2015 NDS was developed by the American Wood Council's (AWC) Wood Design Standards Committee and is referenced in the 2015 International Building Code. One significant addition to the 2015 NDS is a new product-design chapter for cross-laminated timber (CLT). Purchased copy includes integral commentary.
    • NDS Supplement: Design Values for Wood Construction, 2015 Edition: Design provisions in the NDS are integral with design values in the NDS Supplement. As such, it is not appropriate to mix design values and provisions from different editions of the NDS. The NDS Supplement contains design values for sawn lumber, structural glued laminated timber, and round timber poles and piles.
    • Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic, 2015 Edition: ANSI / AWC SDPWS-2015 - Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic standard provides criteria for proportioning, designing, and detailing engineered wood systems, members, and connections in lateral force resisting systems. Engineered design of wood structures to resist wind or seismic forces is either by allowable stress design (ASD) or load and resistance factor design (LRFD). Nominal shear capacities of diaphragms and shear walls are provided for reference assemblies. Purchased copy includes integral commentary.

    ISBN:  9781936039357
    Format:    Booklet
    Authors:    Structures and Codes Institute

    This CodeMaster contains information about designing typical wood framing members, including glued laminated timber, in accordance with the 2015 IBC, ASCE 7-10 and 2015 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.
