Lurdes Laura Morejon Salud, a member of CAMAHA since a few months, received the title of the Civil engineering in the CUJAE. His work of diploma consisted in a study of the wood which turned specifically around the following examiners: which regulations methodologies and criteria can be adopted for the conception of wooden structures sawed in Cuba? And: what would be the structure and the most accessible configuration of standard for the work of the Cuban schemers?

" As student in Civil engineering, he was always interested in the study of the wood and generally the ecological materials, but during its studies only the steel and the reinforced concrete studied themselves with depth, the study of the wood stayed for courts of the third cycle or the master's degree. I approached Dra. CT. Ing. Odalys Á lvarez Rodríguez who had been my teacher of deportment and Preservation of Constructions, her proposed me as subject for the work of diploma: the Proposal of Standard for the Conception of Structures of Madera. For the realization of the work, we studied in depth the current Cuban Standard for the Conception of Structures of Madera (NC 0053-179) and a comparative analysis was realized between more than 10 foreign regulations. In the work of diploma, a methodological structure proposes for the Cuban standard of wooden structures, and incorporate criteria and expressions of conception of supreme current events at the international level. The proposal of standard remained divided into 8 chapters. The work also possesses conclusions."
