Structural Analysis of Wood
Course Structural Analysis of Wood online PDH course is a part of Structural course category. It provides guidelines for structural analysis of wood members. It discusses equations for deformation and stress, which are the basis for tension members and beam and column design. The course covers members, straight members, and special considerations such as notches, slits, and size effect. It also presents stability criteria for members subject to buckling and for members subject to special conditions.
This courses focuses primarily on presenting fundamental mechanics-based equations for analysis of wood members under different loading conditions.
This course is based on Chapter 9 of the United States Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory, General Technical Report FPL–GTR–190 “Wood Handbook: Wood as an Engineering Material”.
This course is intended for use by civil and structural engineers, design and construction professionals, students and others interested in learning about structural analysis of wood members.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Calculate deflection of wood structural members for axial, bending, torsion and combined forces
- Calculate internal stresses of wood structural members for axial, bending, torsion and combined forces
- Calculate stability and buckling load for axial, bending forces as well as for interaction of buckling modes
- Explain effective length of a member and how it impacts buckling calculations
Learning is self motivated
