Standard Specification for Computing the Reference Resistance of Wood-Based Materials and Structural Connections for Load and Resistance Factor Design
|Publication Date:||1 May 2004|
|ICS Code (IT applications in transport):||35.240.60|
1.1 This specification covers procedures for computing the reference resistance of wood-based materials and structural connections for use in load and resistance factor design (LRFD). The reference resistance derived from this specification applies to the design of structures addressed by the load combinations in ASCE 7-02.
1.2 A commentary to this specification is provided in Appendix X1.
