# Statistical Methods in the Design of Structural Timber Columns

*The paper presents a theoretical analysis of the failure probability density function and cumulative failure density function for timber columns of known slenderness ratios
and known distributions of the material properties. This analysis then allows comparisons to be made of failure probabilities in columns of various slenderness ratios and other properties.
