Wood Design Manual 2020

The 2020 Wood Design Manual is the Canadian reference on the design of timber structures, according to Part 4 of the 2020 National Building Code of Canada (NBC) and the “Engineering design in wood” standard (CSA O86:19). 

The Wood Design Manual has a similar scope to the “Concrete Design Handbook” and the “Handbook for Steel Construction”, providing practitioners with essential information for the design of structural wood components following a Part 4 engineered design approach.
