Response from Bruce Pooley

The American Institute of Timber Construction (AITC) and John Wiley & Sons
publish the Timber Construction Manual (TCM), 4th Ed. that is available from
AITC by calling 303-792-9559. The cost is $94 that includes shipping and
handling. You can also obtain ordering information at the AITC web site at . The TCM provides design requirements, recommendations
and examples for wood and glulam beams, columns, arches, tapered beams,
curved beams, and pitched and tapered beams. Chapter 6 provides information
on design of structural systems for trusses, pole-type framing, timber piles
and timber bridges. Chapter 7 contains design information on fasteners,
bolts, lag screws, timber connectors (shear plates, split rings), nails,
wood screws and other fasteners.
