John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
Wood has been used in the construction of buildings, furniture, tools, and vehicles for thousands of years. Today, wood is as important an engineering material as ever, and in many cases, technological advances have made it even more valuable. This course is based entirely on the Wood Handbook published by the USDA Forest Service, which is regarded as the most comprehensive treatise on wood as an engineering material. Part II of this course provides detailed information on the adhesive bonding of wood, composite wood panels, glued structural members, wood finishing, and wood deterioration and preservation. Applications of wood in buildings and bridges are presented for both conventional lumber and round timbers. In addition, code requirements regarding the fire safety of wood construction are discussed.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
