Maximise timber’s potential with Manual for the design of timber building structures to Eurocode 5

The Manual provides guidance on the structural design of single-storey and medium-rise multi-storey buildings and supports the design of timber building structures to BS EN 1995-1-1 (Eurocode 5), together with its supporting codes and standards, within the UK. The first new edition since the Manual’s launch in 2007, it incorporates changes made to Eurocode 5 since its initial publication.

This new edition includes essential updates on material properties, bearing capacities, connections, glulam, racking, and fire, along with the insertion of new sections referencing CLT.

Note: Publication of the harmonised product standard for cross-laminated timber (CLT) is currently delayed. During authorship of this second edition, universal agreement amongst suppliers and other stakeholders had not been reached. Calculation models for CLT are not expected to be incorporated into Eurocode 5 until 2023 at the earliest.

"It was vital that we updated the manual considering all the amendments that were implemented in not just Eurocode 5, but all the supporting standards as well since 2004. By far the leading resource for timber engineering, the new edition ensures that it will continue to be the must-have reference for engineers and specifiers who are keen to work to Eurocode 5."
