SE-015 Structural Analysis of Wood: 1 PDH
Description of the course / activity content:
Course SE-015 Structural Analysis of Wood: 1 PDH is a part of Structural course series. 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
Refunds and Cancellation Policies
The course is accepted by the Professional Engineering boards in states listed on this page. In an unlikely case the course is not accepted by the board listed on this page, we will refund the full payment and will pay for you to take another course of equivalent monetary and PDH / CEU value
Length of the Course / Activity
This course is intended to be studied at self-pace and it should take on average of 1 hour to read and be able to comprehend the material to successfully past the online quiz
To receive the certificate of completion for the above 1 PDH online course, you will need to take a 10 question multiple choice quiz based on the reference material supplied and pass with minimum score of 70%. There is no time limit for the quiz and it can be taken multiple times until a passing score of 70% is achieved
Certificate of Completion
Once you achieve a passing score of 70% on the quiz you will receive and be able to print your Certificate of Completion as a record of your continuing education. PDH Star will keep a record of your certificate for the duration as required by your state of licensure.
