WHERE CAN I FIND WOOD LRFD INSTRUCTION?

A survey was conducted in order to determine how many colleges and universities are teaching the load and resistance factor design, or LRFD, for wood structures. It was found that there are many departments that teach wood courses, but the number of departments adopting LRFD for classroom usage is small. In the paper, the authors identify from the survey results some of the reasons why the adoption of LRFD may be so slow. Also, they make an effort to discern general perceptions of LRFD and other issues that need to be discussed by that part of the civil engineering community with a clear interest in wood.
