Tag: Solid Columns Wood Compression Members

The design of wood columns or other types of compression members requires consideration of compressive strength parallel to the grain, end bearing, and stability, or resistance to buckling. Compressive strength considerations are the same regardless of the type of column, since the maximum compressive stress ƒc induced by loads must not exceed the design value for compression parallel to the grain, Fc, multiplied by applicable
