Description

This Standard sets out the design methods for the structural use of timber which are based on the principles of structural mechanics and on data established by research. 

It is intended for use in the design or appraisal of structural elements comprised of timber or wood products and of structures comprised substantially of timber.

To this end, the Standard provides design data for sawn timber, laminated timber, timber in pole form, plywood and various types of fastenings.

In addition, it provides methods of test for components or assemblies of unconventional design which may not be readily amenable to detailed analysis.

For ease of use, the simpler design situations are covered in the main body of the text.

Related appendices, which form an integral part of the Standard, give acceptable procedures for detailed design situations.
