The design of corbels using the strut-and-tie model entails a trial-and-error procedure in the determination of tension reinforcement.

The Institution has received a copy of the Department of the Environment’s industry research and innovation strategy report, Timber 2005. The report will be filed in the Library, and the purpose of this note is to make members aware of both the document and its contents, as well as the scope that it offers to members contributing to, and benefitting from, the research content. The strategy will be used to guide research and to focus Government financial support. H.P.J. Taylor
