Introduction

The prime purpose of this book is to serve as a design is of considerable value in helping the classroom text for the engineering or architec­ student make the transition from the often sim­ ture student. It will, however, also be useful to plistic classroom exercises to problems of the designers who are already familiar with design real world. Problems for solution by the student in other materials (steel, concrete, masonry) but follow the same idea. The first problems in each need to strengthen, refresh, or update their capa­ subject are the usual textbook-type problems, bility to do structural design in wood.
