GD 5 How to calculate deformations in timber structures using Eurocodes

TRADA image

Explains the principles of serviceability limit states set out in Eurocode 0 and shows how to apply them to structural timber members, assemblies and built-up components. Explains timber-specific rules given in Eurocode 5 relating to creep and joint slip. Recommends some deflection limits and provides simple worked examples.

Contents:

  • Serviceability Limit States
  • Design values of actions
  • Creep
  • Recommended deflection limits in the Eurocode 5 UK NA
  • Joint slip
  • Examples of deformation calculations
  • Domestic ceiling joists
  • Plywood spliced nailed connections
  • Deformations in assemblies and built-up components

Introduction to Eurocode 5navigation-arrow

The Eurocodes are a series of standards that establish common rules across the European Economic Area (EEA) for structural design using main construction materials such as concrete, steel, masonry, timber, aluminium and glass. Together with their National Annexes (NAs), where the national choice on a limited number of Nationally Determined...
