Design of Structural Timber To Eurocode 5 by W. M. C. McKenzie, Binsheng Zhang

Design of Structural Timber To Eurocode 5



Design of Structural Timber To Eurocode 5 by W. M. C. McKenzie, Binsheng Zhang

This textbook provides a comprehensive source of information on practical timber design, and introduces the nature and inherent characteristics of timber given in relation to the requirements of Eurocode 5 (EC5). The scope of the book ranges from an introduction to timber as a material, to the design of realistic structures including and beyond those usually considered essential for undergraduate study. Readers are encouraged to make frequent reference to the appropriate design codes. Although written primarily for undergraduate civil and structural engineers, the book also provides an invaluable reference source for practising engineers in many building, civil and architectural design offices.
