Key differences in approach between structural timber and structural steel

Location: Online
Time: 12:00- 13:30
Organiser: TRADA
Venue:

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.

 

Key differences in approach between structural timber and structural steel with Toby Maclean, Director, Allt Environmental, and Ishan Abeysekera, Senior Engineer, Arup.


Toby and Ishan will use their knowledge and understanding of structural steel to explain how to design in timber. Each key attribute which is handled differently, e.g., vibration, will be looked at to compare and contrast the difference between steel and timber. They will show where to find the calculation methods in more detail in tables and sections of Eurocode 5 and elsewhere.
