Sample text

5) is commonly referred to as ASCE 7-05 or simply ASCE 7. It serves as the basis for some of the loading criteria in the IBC and the regional model codes. The IBC directly references ASCE 7, as does this book. The IBC is used throughout the text to establish the loading criteria for design. The IBC was selected because it is widely used throughout the United States, and because it represents the latest national consensus with respect to load and force criteria for structural design. Throughout the text reference is made to the Code and the IBC.

As noted previously, there are basically two systems that must be designed, one for vertical loads and one for lateral forces. The vertical-load-carrying system is considered first. In a wood-frame building this system is basically composed of beams and columns. Chapters 4 and 5 cover the characteristics and design properties of these wood members. Chapter 6 then outlines the design procedures for beams, and Chap. 7 treats the design methods for columns and members subjected to combined axial and bending loads.
