NDS for Wood Construction, 2005 Edition

ANSI/AF&PA NDS-2005 National Design Specification (NDS) for Wood Construction

with Commentary

and NDS Supplement – Design Values for Wood Construction, 2005 Edition

 

The 2005 Edition of the National Design Specification for Wood Construction was approved as an American National Standard on January 6, 2005. The 2005 NDS was developed as a dual format specification incorporating design provisions for both allowable stress design (ASD) and load and resistance factor design (LRFD). The NDS is adopted in all model building codes in the U.S. and is used to design wood structures worldwide.

 

Design provisions in the NDS are integral with design values in the NDS Supplement. As such, it is not appropriate to mix design values and provisions from different editions of the NDS. For example, the 2001 NDS Supplement contains increased shear design values for sawn lumber to reflect changes in ASTM D245 and provisions of the 2001 NDS were revised to address these increases.

Articles appear in the Winter 2004 edition of Wood Design Focus about the contents and application of the 2005 NDS. Overview of the NDS contents. Wood Design Focus is a journal of the Forest Products Society and is one of the benefits of AWC Design Professional Membership. Also, an eCourse STD104 on the 2005 NDS is available to help users get acquainted with the standard.

The 2005 NDS is available only as part of the complete 2005 Wood Design Package. Thus, neither the NDS and Supplement, the Commentaries, SDPWS, nor the ASD/LRFD Manual will be sold separately to purchasers. However, all parts of the Wood Design Package except the 2005 NDS and Solved Example Problems are available to download from this webpage.

Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic (SDPWS) Standard with Commentary

The ANSI/AF&PA SDPWS-2005 covers materials, design and construction of wood members, fasteners, and assemblies to resist wind and seismic forces. Engineered design of wood structures to resist wind or seismic forces is either by allowable stress design (ASD); or load and resistance factor design (LRFD).

 

ASD/LRFD Manual for Engineered Wood Construction, 2005 Edition

The ASD/LRFD Manual contains design information for structural lumber, glued laminated timber, structural-use panels, shear walls and diaphragms, poles and piles, I-joists, structural composite lumber, metal plate connected wood trusses, and pre-engineered metal connectors. Over 40 details are included in the chapter on connections. A comprehensive chapter on fire design includes fire rated wall and floor assemblies for solid sawn lumber, I-joists, and trusses. Overview of 2005 Wood Design Package.

 

Structural Wood Design Solved Example Problems, 2005 Edition

Structural Wood Design Solved Example Problems is intended to aid instruction on structural design of wood structures using both allowable stress design and load and resistance factor design. Forty example problems allow direct side-by-side comparison of ASD and LRFD for wood structures. Overview of 2005 Solved Example Problems.
