Abstract : The report presents the results of a study of the wood design parameters used in developing standard and non-standard designs for use in theater of operations (T.O.) construction. Of prime importance was the requirement to determine if present design guidance for wood structures in the T.O. is adequate, taking into consideration the diverse environments wherein T.O. structures may be built. Another consideration was to determine if present wood design parameters should be altered in view of the limited requirements for short-term T.O. applications. Recommended alterations to present design and supply procedures are presented in tabular form along with explanations as to why present practice should be changed. (Author)
