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:
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
