Design Considerations for Fatigue in Timber Structures

by W.C. Lewis,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1960, Vol. 86, Issue 5, Pg. 15-24

Document Type: Journal Paper


Information on fatigue of wood and on adequacy of design based on present day working stresses with respect to fatigue; working stresses for timber are developed from average test values for clear wood by applying factors for normal variability, indeterminacy of stress analysis, natural strength-reducing characteristics present in structural timbers, and duration of loading.
