Part of the VNR Structural Engineering Series book series (VNRSES)

Abstract

This chapter is in two parts. Part I deals with loads—the forces to which timber structures may be subjected. It concerns the sources of these loads and shows how to compute their magnitudes.

Keywords

Wind Load Wind Force Dead Load Live Load Allowable Stress 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
