The course also covers non-destructive techniques and strategies available for condition assessment and reuse of these heritage structures.
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Recognise timber as an engineering material and explain the inherent strengths and weaknesses of this organic and ‘living’ material
Identify the cellular structure of timber in relation to softwoods and hardwoods, and appreciate the species identification strategies available
Appreciate the timber grading rules to softwoods and hardwoods, and employ the rules and strategies in assigning strength classes to timber used in existing structures
List the non-destructive testing techniques available in assessing timber used in historic structures
Distinguish the simple structural forms of constructions used in historic structures, and use the available methods to assess the strengths and stiffnesses of individual timber components and joints
Graduates through to senior structural engineers.
Familiarity with timber engineering may be beneficial, but is not essential.
