Re: timber piles

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In addition 

Might want to consider looking at Chapter 11 of the Wood Engineering and
Construction HAndbook. The chapter discusses timber pile foundations and
gives some details of pile cap connections. 

Also check the ASTM specification D 3200 - 74 (reapproved 1994) 

Standard specification and test method for establishing recommended design
stresses for round timber construction poles'

ANSi 05.1-1979 (last publication I have)

Specifications and Dimensions for wood poles

I obtained these publications after talking with the USDA Forest products lab

good luck
