Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: ENGRD 2020. Two evening prelims and a final exam.

Computer-aided and manual computation procedures of Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD)–based engineering of wood structures. National design codes and standards; estimation of factored design loads and load combinations; mechanical properties of wood and wood products; designs of beams, columns, trusses, frames, arches, bridges, diaphragms; connections and wood structural systems. Also discusses engineering design judgment as an integral component of the quantitative design procedure.

Outcome 1: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.

Outcome 2: An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs.

Outcome 3: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
