Title: Structural analysis equations

Author: Rammer, Douglas R.;

Date: 2010

Source: Wood handbook : wood as an engineering material: chapter 9. Centennial ed. General technical report FPL ; GTR-190. Madison, WI : U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory, 2010: p. 9.1-9.11.

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Equations for deformation and stress, which are the basis for tension members and beam and column design, are discussed in this chapter. The first two sections cover tapered members, straight members, and special considerations such as notches, slits, and size effect. A third section presents stability criteria for members subject to buckling and for members subject to special conditions. Note that this chapter focuses primarily on presenting fundamental mechanics-based equations. For design procedures, the reader is encouraged to contact appropriate industry trade associations or product manufacturers. Current design information can be readily obtained form their web sites, technical handbooks, and bulletins.

Keywords: Structural analysis, elasticity, bending, mathematical models, equations, mechanical properties, deformations, modulus of elasticity, strains, stresses, axial loads, torsion, buckling, stress strain curves, bending strength, dimensional stability
