Manual for the design of timber building structures to Eurocode 5 (includes May and July 2008 amendments) (Withdrawn)
Supports the design of structures to BS EN 1995-1-1:2004 and the UK National Annex (NA) which sets out the Nationally determined parameters (NDPs) for construction in the UK. Offers design guidance for structural timberwork in single-storey and medium-rise multi-storey buildings. Considers 2 types of timber structure, open frame buildings and platform frame buildings with a maximum height of 18m to the finished floor level of the top storey. Considers the design aspects for roofs, floors and walls, flexural, tension and compression members, diaphragms and flitch beams, mechanically fastened and glued connections and load duration, service class, creep, durability and fire resistance.
Superseded by Manual for the design of timber building structures to Eurocode 5. Second edition (IStructE, 2020). The accompanying CD-ROM is not available within The Construction Information Service, however snapshot images of the interactive spreadsheets have been included.
