New guidance, developed by the UKTFA and other professional bodies, that provides good practice information on safe fire space separation for timber elements during construction.
In Timber Engineering Notebook (TEN) No. 21, the engineered wood product known as cross-laminated timber (CLT) was introduced. This latest article in the TEN series provides a more detailed introduction to the applications and use of CLT as a structural timber product, including structural benefits and benefits to the construction process.
This Timber Engineering Notebook provides guidance for engineers involved in the design of timber frame building structures on the structural stability issues commonly referred to as 'design for structural robustness' or 'design to avoid disproportionate collapse' in buildings.
