A minority of university engineering programs teaches structural wood design on a regular basis, yet wood is one of the most common building materials in the United States. This seminar will give the basics behind designing building structures with solid sawn lumber and engineered wood members, including their connections and building code provisions for resisting lateral forces.
John Lawson is an Associate Professor in Architectural Engineering at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, where he teaches structural wood design. He is a licensed Structural Engineer in California and Arizona, and has over 25 years of consulting experience as a licensed Structural Engineer. He holds a Master of Science in Structural Engineering from Stanford University, and a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Lawson has received national awards in his building designs and his teaching methods.
