Wood Material Design Values Spreadsheet

Wood Material Design Values Spreadsheet

Wood Material Design Values Spreadsheet

Does anyone know if there is a spreadsheet out there that has all the wood design properties based on NDS?
And or sizes.

Just thought of something - I suppose I could copy and paste from the design software we have (i.e. RAM / RISA).

Still curious to know if this already exists.



RE: Wood Material Design Values Spreadsheet

I am not aware of any.

Why do you need all of the values?

In every region there is a preponderance of just a few species commercially available. Input them by hand and set up the resulting table such that you can add to it in the future. This way you can insert rows with new values as the need arises if your intent is to create a Look-up Table. As far as lumber sizes, why not simply make them User Input values? Getting familiar with the typical S4S sizes is easy, and it'll permit the use of non-standard sizes.
