    Design of Wood Structures - ASD, Donald E. Breyer, Kenneth Fridley, Kelly Cobeen, David Pollock, McGraw Hill, , ISBN , ISBN This book is an update of a long-established text dating from at least (DJF); Quoting: This book is gives a good grasp of seismic design for wood structures. In structural engineering, a diaphragm is a structural element that transmits lateral loads to the vertical resisting elements of a structure (such as shear walls or frames).Diaphragms are typically horizontal, but can be sloped such as in a gable roof on a wood structure or concrete ramp in a parking garage. The diaphragm forces tend to be transferred to the vertical resisting elements. A tensile test, also known as a tension test, is one of the most fundamental and common types of mechanical testing. A tensile test applies tensile (pulling) force to a material and measures the specimen's response to the stress. By doing this, tensile tests determine how strong a material is and how much it can elongate.

Wood: Strength and Stiffness Wood is one of the oldest and best-known structural materials, and one of the few renewable natural resources.

Failures In Timber Beams If a beam is loaded too heavily it will break or fail in some characteristic manner. These failures may be classified according to the way in which they develop, as tension, compression, and horizontal shear; and according to the appearance of the broken surface, as brash, and fibrous.

PROPERTIES OF WOOD AND STRUCTURAL WOOD PRODUCTS INTRODUCTION Wood differs from other construction materials because it is produced in a living tree. As a result, wood possesses material properties that may be significantly different from other materials normally encountered in structural Size: KB.

The wood sample is then prepared to obtain a specimen with a shape analogous to that used in tension tests of polymeric materials (dumb-shell-shaped).The modifications made to the dimensions stated in EN ISO had in mind: the application of the strain gauge in the middle of the element; the tension grips available; and the necessity to have grip areas long enough Cited by: 5.

Design of Wood Framing General This chapter addresses elements of above-grade structural systems in residential construction. As discussed in Chapter 1, the residential construction material most commonly used above grade in the United States is light-frame wood; therefore, this chapter focuses on structural design that specifies standard.

Assuming a 6ft length of 4x4 that actually measures inches square, and plugging these numbers into the formula, we get: 10, psi * (2 * in * in^2) / (3 * 72in) = pounds. This appears to be the point at which your beam will deform.

BUILDING MATERIALS & STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS SM 1c, 1&2 2 TENSION FORCES (continued) • Ductile behavior is the ability of a material to stretch and/or bend without suddenly breaking, and after the load is removed it can remain stretched/bent and then be re-loaded.

The nail plates on the bottom chord are in tension. When heated, they will deform and become unattached from the wood. This, again, is an example of a structural member under tension reacting to heat.

Architectural or structural floors can be automatically split into various types of slabs (massive slabs, hollow-core slabs, etc.) according to. Test pieces are screwed into or gripped in jaws and stretched by moving the grips apart at a constant rate while measuring the load and the grip separation.

This data is plotted as load vs extension and then converted to engineering stress (load/original area) vs engineering strain (fractional change in length over the test section assuming the. 3) Vertical Geometric Irregularity - Horizontal dimension of structural system more than % of that of an adjacent story - ie setbacks 4) In-Plane Discontinuity in Vertical Lateral-Force-Resisting Elements - an offset in structural elements 5) Discontinuity in Capacity - weak story - one story is less strong than an adjacent story.

Chapter 7 Structural design IntroductIon Structural design is the methodical investigation of the stability, strength and rigidity of structures. The basic objective in structural analysis and design is to produce a structure capable of resisting all applied loads without failure during its intended life.

The primary purposeFile Size: 2MB. In applied mechanics, bending (also known as flexure) characterizes the behavior of a slender structural element subjected to an external load applied perpendicularly to a longitudinal axis of the element.

The structural element is assumed to be such that at least one of its dimensions is a small fraction, typically 1/10 or less, of the other two. When the length is considerably longer.

Wood and Timber Tensile Testing Equipment The unique structure of wood necessitates a variety of testing methods to fully characterize the material properties. The specific end use application for the wood material also dictates which test methods are necessary to determine the appropriate material strengths.
