Intended Audience: civil, construction, structural, and mechanical engineers


Discover the basic design and construction methods for single-story residential wood decks. Dive in to the 2015 edition of the technical publication of “Prescriptive Residential Wood Deck Construction Guide” American Wood Council of the American Forest & Paper Association in our course developed by Dr. Rossow. This course will walk through the established construction guide that meets or exceeds the minimum design requirements of the International Code Council’s International Residential Code. Specific design guidance (much of it in the form of convenient tables and charts) is provided for all deck components. This course is intended for civil, construction, structural, and mechanical engineers, and would also be of particular interest to engineers serving as building officials in the military or in government agencies concerned with residential construction practices.
