The Wood Design Manual is the Canadian reference on the design of timber structures, under gravity and lateral loadings, according to Part 4 of the National Building Code of Canada (NBC) and the “Engineering design in wood” standard (CSA O86). It provides guidance and design examples on sawn and engineered wood members, their connections and fire design. The most common design situations encountered by practicing engineers are covered through intuitive Selection Tables. In addition, the Wood Design Manual contains the latest CSA O86 Standard, as well as a technical commentary written by timber design experts including members of the Standard’s technical committee.
Permanent Wood Foundations (PWF) brings together all of the standards and building practices used to build these types of foundations. The 2016 edition has been updated to conform to the requirements of CSA S406-16, CSA O86-14 and NBC 2015.
Introduction to Wood Design has been prepared to facilitate and encourage the instruction of wood engineering at Canadian universities and colleges. The publication is a supplement to the Wood Design Manual 2017.
The Engineering Guide for Wood Frame Construction provides guidance to engineers, building designers, building officials, builders, and students of these disciplines, on the structural design of wood elements and connections for wood frame buildings that fall within the scope of Part 9 of the NBC. The 2014 Edition of the Guide was revised in order to conform to changes in the 2015 edition of the NBC.
