About this publication

Structural timber elements: a pre-scheme design guide 2nd edition

•At-a-glance reference guide to structural timber options for use during the early stages of design

•Includes comparisons of sawn timber, glulam, I-joists, unilam, CLT, LVL and flitch beams to aid product selection

•Highly illustrated with drawings, graphs and sizing tables, enabling designers to make the most efficient choices

In the early stages of a new project designers must find answers to many questions. What should the structure be made from? Where should columns or walls be located? Is it a framed building or does it have loadbearing walls? How thick do walls and floors need to be?

Structural timber elements combines design data with the invaluable experience of timber designers. Particularly useful for engineers who have designed buildings out of steel and concrete, but have limited experience with timber, it will also benefit architects, students and lecturers who need comparative information on structural timber options.

The second edition of this book contains additional coverage of robustness, moisture movement, typical moment connection capacities, long span beams, as well as several new drawings, graphs and sizing tables.

James Norman, Programme Director of Civil Engineering at Bristol University has researched and written this book with assistance from TRADA members.
