9780620104142: How to Specify Prefabricated Engineered Timber Roof Trusses: A Practical Manual

ln this manual Ralph Sörensen shows clearly and methodically the way to trouble-free timber roof construction. He summarizes the lessons learnt by the truss industry over the past two decades - a period of significant development not only in the understanding of the structural behaviour of roofs but also in writing specifications to ensure quality. Though the manual deals primarily with engineered, prefabricated trusses, the underlying principles apply equally well to site-made, nailed and bolted trusses. Ralph Sörensen, Director - Technical Sales of York Timbers Timber Engineering Division, began his career at York in 1970 and established a one-man roof-truss division. York's Truss Division, headed by Ralph Sörensen, is today the largest prefabricated engineered truss operation in the Republic. Ralph has seen to it that more than 20,000 homes in South Africa have been built with York-trusses. ln addition, many large commercial & industrial timber roof truss contracts have been won by York Timbers under his leadership.
