Overview

This major reference manual covers both overall and detail design of structural timber, including aspects such as shear deflection, creep, dynamic and lateral stability considerations for flexural members.

It has been substantially revised to take account of changes since the last edition, nearly 20 years ago, and to include the latest revision of British Standard BS 5268-2 : 2002, which has brought design concepts closer to European practice and Eurocode 5.

New features of the Third Edition include:

  • revised information on bolt values including a consideration of improved performance using 8.8 grade bolts
  • new chapters on composite sections and Eurocode 5 on structural timber
  • new developments in materials and products
  • horizontal roof and floor diaphragms
  • vertical shear walls

The manual continues to provide extensive tables and coefficients that will save the practising engineer many design hours. It will also be of interest as a reference for civil engineering undergraduates and to timber manufacturers. Whilst the design examples in the book are based on BS 5268, a large part of the content will have international appeal, whatever code or standard is being used.

From reviews of the last edition

"the complete design manual ... a 'must'"
Timber Trades Journal

"the manual continues its established position as an authoritative reference and in providing numerous time saving design aids."
Institute of Wood Science Journal
