TimbersizerPro EC5 edition

Select the most efficient timber cross-section for your design with this time-saving online software for engineers and architects.

 

Using timber sizes readily available in the UK market, timbersizerPro suggests appropriate cross-sections based on timber strength classes C16 or C24, or joist depth. This allows you to specify the most appropriate timbers available, or ones that give the optimum floor/ceiling depth.

 

The timbersizerPro software service is regularly reviewed and updated to keep it abreast of any modifications and changes to the Eurocode standards. This helps you to ensure your designs are compliant with the latest codes.

 

timbersizerPro can be used for free by TRADA members.

Covers all domestic structural timber members

 

Calculation options include: joists for domestic floors, ceilings or flat roofs; binders supporting ceiling joists; rafters; and purlins supporting rafters, sheeting or decking.

 

Consistent with TRADA's Eurocode 5 span tables

 

timbersizerPro uses the same calculation engine as the new version of the TRADA publication Eurocode 5 Span tables for solid timber members in floors, ceilings and roofs for dwellings. So you can have confidence in the calculation results it produces.

 

Generate an instant report

 

timbersizerPro subscribers can generate custom pdf reports with full numerical strength/stress comparisons of timber performance. This is useful for calculation reference and Building Control requirements.
