The American Wood Council (AWC) released a revised 2015 Manual for Engineered Wood Construction. The document contains design information for structural lumber, glued laminated timber, structural-use panels, cross-laminated timber, poles and piles, I-joists, and structural composite lumber. It pertains to structural applications of many wood-based products and their connections in accordance with requirements of referenced standards. 

The manual incorporates dual formats, providing design provisions for both allowable stress design and load and resistance factor design. Informational chapters are organized to parallel those found in the National Design Specification for Wood Construction (NDS).

The 2015 Manual is available as a free download from the AWC website.
