RE: ASD or LRFD for Wood Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
So I hear, but who really has been designing sawn lumber structures with
LFRD - I know I haven't and probably because there is too much variance in
quality of lumber to attempt to tweak out designs safely. Any other
opinions - I really am interested.

LRFD for sawn lumber is covered by the AF&PA/AWC LRFD
Manual and  Supplement "Structural Lumber"
