Wood handbook : wood as an engineering material by Forest Products Laboratory (U.S.)( Book )

39 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is intended as an aid to more efficient use of wood as a construction material. It provides engineers, architects, and others with a source of information on the physical and mechanical properties of wood and how these properties are affected by variations in wood

Field performance of timber bridges by James P Wacker( Book )

35 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Spearfish Creek bridge was constructed in 1992 in Spearfish, South Dakota. It is a single span, stress laminated, box beam superstructure. Performance of the bridge is being monitored for 5 years, beginning at installation. This report summarizes results for the first 3-1/2 years of monitoring and includes information on the design, construction, and field evaluations of the wood moisture content, force level in the stressing bars, behavior under static loading, and overall structure condition. Based on field evaluations, the bridge is performing satisfactorily with no structural or serviceability deficiencies. However, two bridge restressings were performed due to excessive bar force loss

Field performance of timber bridges by Paula D Hilbrich Lee( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dean, Hibbsville, and Decatur bridges were constructed in southern Iowa during 1994. Each bridge is a simple span, stress laminated deck superstructure, approximately 7.3 m (24 ft) long, constructed from eastern cottonwood lumber. The performance of each bridge was monitored for approximately 2 years, beginning shortly after installation. Monitoring involved collecting and evaluating data pertaining to the moisture content and vertical creep of the wood decks, the force level of the stressing bars, and the behavior of the bridges under static load conditions. Comprehensive visual inspections were also conducted to assess the overall condition of the structure. Based on field evaluations, the bridges are performing well with minor serviceability deficiencies

Wood anatomy of the neotropical Sapotaceae by B. Francis Kukachka( Book )

66 editions published between 1979 and 1983 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The genus Franchetella was established by Pierre in 1890, represented by the type species F. tarapotensis (Eichl.) Pierre that had been discovered in the Peruvian Amazon and originally designated as Lucuma tarapotensis Eichl. The genus Eremoluma was created by Baillon in 1891 based on a collection from French Guiana and designated as E. sagotiana Baill. Subsequent students of the Sapotaceae did not accept these genera and relegated then to synonymy under the dubious genus Lucuma. In 1942 Baehni (4) transferred the types of Franchetella and Eremoluma and a number of additional species to Pouteria in Section Eremoluma that included the following species: Pouteria anibifolia (A.C. Smith) Baehni, P. cearensis Baehni, P. rostrata (Huber) Baehni, P. sagotiana (Baill.) Eyma, P. reticulata (Engl.) Eyma, P. meyeri (Standl.) Baehni, P. unilocularis (Donn.-Sm.) Baehni, P. tarapotensis (Eichl.) Baehni, P. platyphylla (A.C. Smith) Baehni, P. campanulata Baehni, and later (5) added P. purusiana Baehni
