Beam and lumber requirements for many jobs aren t always clear, especially with changing building codes and lumber products. Most of the time you rely on your own rules of thumb when figuring spans or lumber engineering.
This book can help you fill the gap between what you can find in the building code span tables and what you need to pay a certified engineer to do. With its large, clear illustrations and examples, this book shows you how to figure stresses for pre-engineered wood or wood structural members, how to calculate loads, and how to design your own girders, joists and beams.
