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.
Designing with moisture in mind in new and old timber buildings with Andrew Lawrence, Associate Director, Arup, and Kim Collins, Senior Structural Engineer, Historic England.
Andrew and Kim will explore: the principles of moisture in wood and how they affect structural and durability performance; how to work with moisture in wood and not against it; and design issues affecting external structural components. In addition, Kim will take a look at how we can control the conditions inside old buildings to best use and preserve existing structural timber members.
