Introduction to Wood DesignPublished by University of Windsor
This project is made possible with funding by the Government of Ontario and through eCampusOntario’s support of the Virtual Learning Strategy.
This course has been developed as a collaboration between the Government of Ontario, eCampusOntario, the Canadian Wood Council (CWC), and the University of Windsor. The materials form a template for an introductory course on structural wood design with emphasis on virtual delivery. The course is appropriate for inclusion in CEAB accredited engineering programs in Canada. Four-, six-, and twelve-week versions of the course are available to allow for the possibility of the course being included within existing courses or offered as an independent course. The material is appropriate for third or fourth year undergraduate students (fourth year recommended) or some course based graduate programs. It is assumed that the students have previously been exposed to wood as a material through a prior or concurrent materials course and have taken structural mechanics courses as prerequisites. Thus, the primary emphasis of the course is on designing wood structures based on the requirements of CSA O86 as well as the proper use of the Wood Design Manual (e.g., how to navigate the text and use the selection tables). Instructors are invited to modify the content of the course to reflect their teaching style, desired difficulty, and requirements for their program.
