Plank-And-Beam Framing for Residential Buildings

Publisher: American Wood Council
Number of pages: 40

Description:
The plank-and-beam method for framing floors and roofs has been used in heavy timber buildings for many years. The adaptation of this system to residential construction has raised many technical questions from designers and builders concerning the details of application. This publication presents technical data that will be helpful to students, architects, engineers and builders. It contains information pertaining to principles of design, advantages and limitations, construction details, and structural requirements for the plank-and-beam method of framing, including span and load tables.
