IMPROVED STANDARD DESIGN PRESSURE-TREATED TIMBER CRIB WALLS
The results are presented of efforts to achieve the optimum material economy by component standardization, and the optimum installation economy by simplicity of assembly, both consistent with conservative design practice. The standard timber cribbing basic design index are presented as well as data related to standard treated timber cribbing basic design types. The typical details are illustrated and general notes are presented of standard treated timber cribbing. Comments are made on how to use the industry standard. The engineer or architect may select from a variety of pressure treatment preservatives for ground contact, based on aesthetic or other considerations. These include creosote, pentachlorophenol in mineral spirits or liquid petroleum gas or waterborne salts.
