Product Description

Published by the Institution in conjunction with TRADA, this manual supports the design of structures to BS EN 1995-1-1:2004 for construction in the UK.

Guidance is provided on the design of structures of single-storey and medium-rise multi-storey buildings using common forms of structural timberwork. Structures designed in accordance with this manual will normally comply with EC5.
Nationally Determined Parameters from the UK National Annex have been taken into account in the design formulae presented.

The manual is laid out for hand calculation, but the procedures are equally suitable for computer-based applications. Timber is a relatively complex structural material but designers should find the manual concise and useful for practical design.
Methods are given for initial sizing design as well as for final design.

The accompanying CD provides connection design software to facilitate the calculation of the lateral load capacity of nails, screws, bolts and dowels. It also includes more extensive tables of material properties.
