Timber: Design, Structure and Construction

Teaching Assistant(s)
Levi van Weerden

Processes of structural design, load determination, construction process and system selection are referenced and presented within a timber engineering context. Timber design topics such as flexural, compression and truss members, connections, and plywood construction are studied using calculations, design aids, rules of thumb and the latest CSA design standards. Case studies are invoked to provide inspiration where applicable.
