At the request of the publishers, COFI wrote articles for three wood industry magazines in this autumn.  October issue of “Housing and Wood”, published by HOWTEC*, featured a COFI’s technical note on post & beam horizontal diaphragm with Canadian dimension lumber.  HOWTEC is also the publisher of Grey Book known as a bible for P&B structural design.  This article could give a great impact to engineers’ community as the Grey Book publisher explained in its own monthly magazine how the Canadian dimension lumber can be applicable for Japanese the P&B structures.  In November issue of “Wood Industry” magazine, COFI wrote about the recent technical developments on Midply Wall System.  The autumn issue of “Two-by-Four”, published by the Japan 2×4 Home Builders Association, dealt with the article from COFI regarding the “Wood Best Practices: Industry Forum”, held by FII in 2016 in Vancouver.
