This manual has been written to provide a comprehensive source of information on practical timber design, introduce the nature and inherent characteristics of timber given in relation to the requirements of BS 5268 and to introduce the use of Eurocode EC5 in structural timber design. The design of structures/elements is explained and illustrated using numerous detailed, relevant and practical worked examples. These design examples are presented in a format typical of that used in design office practice in order to encourage students to adopt a methodical and rational approach when preparing structural calculations.
