This Technical Guidance Note concerns the design of pile-caps for small groups of piles e.g. 2-4 piles. It relies on the strut and tie method to determine the amount of reinforcement required in the pile-cap; which is dependent upon the depth of the cap, the magnitude of the axial load being placed upon it, the cap’s concrete strength and the pile size and spacing.
This Timber Engineering Notebook introduces the construction and connection details appropriate to open frame construction and provides a worked example for a dowelled glulam portal haunch connection.
From an initial study of c.300 buildings, Andrew Charleson presents a number of short case studies to illustrate how key architectural concepts and qualities are reinforced by exposed structure.
