## `a constantly debated topic’ (pole barn versus post frame)

Pole barn versus post frame … how to keep the structure from flopping over? Consider a barn, or perhaps a shop, made using timber and `posts’. There are two main ways to keep it from flopping over. One way is …

## Shear-Free Eeee

E (E and shear-free E) (c) Jeff R. Filler, 2022 The deflections calculated in earlier examples (link and link) are based on the standard engineering formula for beams based on beam-curvature theory – where the beam curvature is a result …

## Case(s) in Point

In the example (here) I discussed a person standing on a wood plank, and `examining’ the deflection. Talk is cheap. I grabbed three pieces of lumber (that I milled) in my shop: one piece a 1 x 5 Southern Pine …

## Shear Deflection – Prefab Wood I-Joist

Shear Deflection – Prefab Wood I-Joist Example Calc (c) Jeff R. Filler, Pell City, 2022 Continuing our discussion on shear deflection of wood beams (joists, etc.), let’s look at a prefabricated wood I-joists. Basic design information for prefabricated wood I-joists …

## E min

E min (c) Jeff R. Filler, Pell City, Alabama, 2022 But First, E apparent and E true `E min’ is calculated wood property used in the design of structural wood members (beams, columns, etc.). It is a derived property, derived …

## E app (Apparent Modulus of Elasticity)

`E app’ E app (`Eee app’, `Eee apparent’, Apparent Modulus of Elasticity) is a design property for wood construction. It comes from the Modulus of Elasticity of the wood (E, MOE, Young’s Modulus). It’s not a `true’, or `pure’ property, …
