Rational analysis and design procedure for wood joist floor systems, A
Wood joist structural systems in housing and other construction account for a large percentage of the total use of wood, one of man's most important renewable resources. The current method of design of wood systems is based on grossly simplifying assumptions, which can lead to inefficient use and unpredictable performance. In the fall of 1971, an interdisciplinary team of researchers was organized at Colorado State University under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation to develop a rational analysis procedure for wood joist structural systems. The goal of this research was to develop ...
