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.

A review of the Wood and Armer equations for torsion in bridge slabs

The ‘Wood and Armer’ equations are well established as a means of accounting for torsional moments in bridge slabs. In this article, a potential source of misinterpretation of the original equations is identified and corrected. The misinterpretation is shown not to have significant implications for design, but may be of consequence where the Wood and Armer equations have been used for assessment. A number of other inconsistencies are identified and a revised set of equations is proposed.

Timber Engineering Notebook series. No. 2: Engineered wood products and an introduction to timber st

Combinations of timber or laminated sections with different materials such as wood-based boards or metal elements are used to create ‘engineered wood products’ (EWPs) whose maximum size is limited only by manufacturing, handling and transportation constraints. Different types of EWP are described here, in addition to timber structural systems and their structural applications.
