2015/2018 NDS Example Problems: Member Designs and Connection Basics (DES221)

For those with limited wood design exposure, in need of a refresher for the PE/SE exam or simply seeking practical application of the provisions of the National Design Specification┬« (NDS┬«) for Wood Construction (ANSI/AWC NDS-2018), this presentation provides several design examples including beams, columns, and connection basics from the Structural Wood Design Examples, 2015/2018 Edition. Design provisions and equations from the 2015 and 2018 NDS and reference design values from the 2018 NDS Supplement will be used to calculate capacities under various loading conditions. Each example will include discussion of design value adjustment factors and load combinations.

1. Discuss application of NDS design provisions for beams, columns, connections, and calculating design values.
2. Apply the reference design values from the NDS Supplement.
