Simplified Design of Structural Wood (Parker/Ambrose Series of Simplified Design Guides) Reviews
If you're doing any design of wood structures, this is the book to have. Great references, cut the fat content. Very good for real world application design. Super inexpensive.
This book is a great refresher or textbook for design professionals. Not as in depth as the true wood design bible (NDS) but it does clearly cover all bases required for straight forward design work or preliminary sizing of structural members. The calculations cover ASD and LRFD calculations and the two blur upon first read but after a second examination the each calculation is distinguished from the other. In my experience this seems to be the norm of books that cover both types of calculations.
The book gives a good overview of the subject. Lots of design examples. Pointed the way toward other books on the subject to be read for more in depth knowledge.
Concise and really practical
This textbook is a very useful resource for my Temporary Structures College Course Class. It is a physically compact book.
Very good book.
I have tried to contact the seller various times to return the book but I get no reply. I have dropped this course and for a month now I have unsuccessfully tried to contact the seller. I did receive the book on time but the course was dropped and no return/refund policy was posted.
