|Publication Date:||1 January 1996|
This standard provides design criteria for structures constructed of structurally graded lumber, structural glued laminated timber, panel products, poles, piles, and other structural wood components, and their connections. This standard is for the design of buildings and similar structures. Wherever in this standard reference is made to the appendices, the provisions of the appendices shall apply, The derivation of design strengths and resistances is outside the scope of this standard.
Design strengths and resistances established for use with this standard shall be determined in accordance with ASTM Specification D5457-93.
