For clarity and brevity, this note only covers solid and glued laminated (glulam) timber elements; compound and composite beams, such as flitch beams, are not considered. The connections within timber frame assemblies will be addressed in a future note.
Readers should also be aware that this note forms part of a trio of Technical Guidance Notes leading to the design of bespoke timber trusses – assemblies made from unrestrained timber beams and posts. Notes on the design of timber posts and bespoke timber trusses will follow later in the series.
This note describes how steel fibre reinforced concrete groundbearing slabs are designed.
This note explains how reinforced concrete walls are designed to withstand high in-plane bending forces, in accordance with Eurocode 2.
This note focuses on the design of non-composite steel beams to BS EN 1993-1-1 – Eurocode 3: Design of Steel Structures – Part 1-1: General Rules for Buildings . It covers both restrained and unrestrained rolled steel ‘I’ and ‘H’ beam sections. Updated in October 2016.
