Timber Engineering - Some Aspects of Research, Design and Industrialization in Relation to Code of Practice CP112

A Code of Practice for timber has to take into account considerations ranging from forest economy to the changing effects of industrialization in the building and timber industries. In so far as it succeeds in its task it becomes an instrument of policy for the utilization of natural and industrial resources and in particular for improving communications between research and design. Rapid changes in industrial techniques demand a flexibility in codification which places greater emphasis on the importance of prototype testing and on a better understanding of the significance of behaviour characteristics requiring some re-alignment of research and design concepts.
