Introduction to Wood

This presentation will provide an introductory review of allowable uses and best design practices associated with wood-frame construction. Structural wood design for vertical (gravity) loads including bending, shear, deflection, vibration, tension, compression, and connections will be introduced. Common wood-framed lateral force-resisting systems will be discussed as will the components included in wood shear walls. Design and detailing best practices for wood-frame buildings will be explained in an effort to highlight the items that play an important role in the construction process and ultimate building performance.
