This course is also available for in-house delivery
Available until one month prior
By the end of the course, attendees will learn about:
Tapered and curved members
Connections, moment connections & avoiding brittle failures
Stability and vertical diaphragm walls
Strength and stiffness of cross laminated timber
Graduate and entry level engineers wishing to fast track their timber design experience
Experienced engineers with current projects wishing to refresh their timber knowledge
As this is an advanced course, attendance to the Eurocode 5: the essentials of timber design course is a recommended pre-requisite
In alternative, familiarity with timber engineering to Eurocode 5 is expected
Dr Ranasinghe is the Principal Engineer for Structural Timber at BM TRADA and Warringtonfire. Formerly an academic with research and teaching experience both in the UK and abroad, Keerthi has delivered these timber courses at the Institution since 2008. Keerthi is the author of several TRADA publications, including the Span Tables to Eurocode 5, and the Institution’s Manual for the design of timber building structures to Eurocode 5, 2nd edition. Keerthi sits in British and European Standardisation Committees related to timber design and was also a project team member that wrote the connections chapter to the second edition of Eurocode 5.
