    Default Span Tables for Hardwood

    Hi all,

    Iím writing to ask for help getting some span tables I can use with hardwood. I can get F27 from my local lumber yard but canít find suitable span tables. Iíve tried googling around and followed the threads on this forum but they all seem to be for softwood. Can anyone help? Iíve tried downloading some of the software that seems to be available but canít get it to produce what I need. It looks like I could get what I need from AS1684 but donít want to pay $100+ for it.

    If anyone has AS1684 and can (legally) scan / send me the relevant tables, Iíd be grateful.

    BTW I found the attached but if I am reading right, it only includes bearer span tables. It has some tables labeled joist tables but they donít seem to be joist tables to me (they reference floor load width rather than joist spacing so they look more like bearer span tables)

    Otherwise any help much appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    Andrew

    As per my usual recommendation - download the Tillings SmartFrame QuickDesign. It will cover just about anything and includes F27 KDHW as well as LVL's, MGP etc, etc.

    Not F27 but close.
    May be best to buy a book.
    I gave up looking or asking for that, google seems to be of little help short of book offers.
    I called my structural engineer who gave me what I needed over the phone and gratis.

    ...you can download a copy from my link. Note that you may need to download version 5 of the Foxit viewer as the more recent versions now honour digital restrictions management (sigh, more feature bloat).
