  • Understand different wood structural systems

Description:
Wood construction has gained significant popularity over the past decade as a sustainable, cost-effective solution for low-rise multi-residential buildings. The push has been to extend the use of wood to mid-rise and high-rise construction for increased density on urban infill projects.

Topics covered in this course include: physical and mechanical properties of wood and structural wood products, design of axially loaded members, flexural members, and combined axial and flexural wood members, design of wood connection and introduction of different wood systems and structural assemblies.

Course Outline:

  • Introduction to wood and wood structures
  • Physical and mechanical properties of wood
  • Structural wood products and structural forms
  • Design process and code consideration
  • Design of axially loaded members
  • Design of flexural members
  • Design of combined axial and flexural members
  • Mechanics of wood in fire
  • Design of connections
  • Introduction to wood structural systems

Who Should Attend:
Structural Engineers • Design Engineers • Engineering Consultants • Project Engineers/Managers • Contractors • City Engineers • Building Inspectors

Required Resources:
Participants should have their own copies of the Wood Design Manual 2017 (if applicable).
