Throughout the world, wood products and engineered wood structures have a tremendous economic significance, but the wood industry has historically received less attention and a lower degree of financial support for new development than other construction materials. At the same time, reliability-based design procedures (RBD) for engineered structures are being developed and are rapidly gaining acceptance by code agencies throughout the world. In this state of the art review of Reliability-Based Design of Engineered Wood Structures the reader will find a complete vade mecum for reliable wood-based construction, including the fundamentals of reliability-based design, its development for structural timber, and work towards a global harmonization of timber engineering codes and standards. For all those engineers, builders and formulator of building standards and codes of practice whose work involves structural timber, Reliability-Based Design of Engineered Wood Structures offers up to date support and information.
