  • Member sizing

  • Tapered and curved members

  • Connections, moment connections & avoiding brittle failures

  • Fire design

  • Stability and vertical diaphragm walls

  • Vibration analysis

  • Strength and stiffness of cross laminated timber

  • Glued-in rods

Intended for

  • Graduate and entry level engineers wishing to fast track their timber design experience

  • Experienced engineers with current projects wishing to refresh their timber knowledge

Entry criteria

  • 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
