About this workshop

Eurocode 5 is a robust and rigorous design code, but takes a less prescriptive approach to design compared to BS5268. As such it offers opportunities in design but will require clear understanding and careful application. It is expected that the new design code will enhance timber design in the UK especially for engineers as yet unfamiliar with timber as a structural building material.

This one day training course covers the essentials of the design of timber structures to Eurocode 5. It is ideal for experienced designers looking for the key differences between BS and Eurocodes, ensuring a smooth transition from the British Standards.

For each of the principal aspects covered, the course provides background to the structural behaviour, explanation of the codified treatment including departure from existing practice (BS 5268), illustrating with worked examples where appropriate. It also considers the interaction with other Eurocodes on the design of timber structures.
