The Structural timber engineering series (May – June 2021) includes five sessions and delves into topics including: structural timber products, designing for durability, timber connections, and hybrid construction.
It will be of particular interest to lecturers and practising engineers.
Understanding structural timber products, how they are made and for what purposes they are used with Hugh Mansfield-Williams, Technical Manager, BM TRADA, and Andrew King, Director, Constructional Timber.
Hugh and Andrew will look at the various manufacturing techniques employed to make
structural timber products; the effect that these have on the structural performance;
how products are tested, assessed and classified; and the manner in which Eurocode 5
refers to or uses the products’ classifications.
