ISO/TR 12910:2010 provides an introduction and synopsis of comparisons among the following four national design documents on light-frame timber (wood) construction:
- AS 1684-1, AS 1684-2 and AS 1684-3;
- the Engineering guide for wood-frame construction;
- NZS 3604;
- the Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings (Chapter 1: General information, Chapter 2: Engineered design and Chapter 3: Prescriptive design).
Each of the four light-frame texts compared in ISO/TR 12910:2010 is based on a national timber design standard that includes provisions for assemblies and systems, which go beyond single-member design methodology.
