PART 1: MATERIALS FOR TIMBER STRUCTURES 1.1. Construction products The EU Construction Directive CE-marking 1.2. Wood Basic structure of wood of importance for its structural use: 3 main directions - Moisture properties: moisture content, moisture movement (swelling, shrinkage) - Time effects. Service classes. Load duration classes. kmod and kdef - Durability and protection against fungi, insects and termites: design for durability, preservative treatments 1.3. Structural timber Main species used in UK softwoods and hardwoods Testing and characteristic properties Grading Strength classes Sizes and tolerances: European and North American practices Structural considerations Machining 1.4. Glued laminated timber Production Basic properties Sizes and tolerances Structural considerations 1.5. Wood based panels and Engineered products Basic properties and sizes, moisture movements, standards. Structural considerations - Plywood - Particle boards, OSB, Cement bonded - Fibre board, MDF - LVL - Solid wood panels - Gypsum boards - Laminated and parallel strand lumber - Light composite components 1.6. Fasteners Basic properties and sizes. Standards, Corrosion protection - Nails - Bolts - Dowels - Screws - Fasteners - Punched metal plate fasteners - Hangers, nailing plates, 3-dimensional fittings PART 2: TYPICAL STRUCTURAL USES Typical structural uses in UK. Typical dimensions, Examples on structures. - Beams - Floors and decking - Roof diaphragm - Wall - Trusses - Arches and frames - Poles PART 3: STRUCTURAL DESIGN 3.1. Eurocodes The Eurocode system Eurocode, Design of structures Limit state design Actions, partial coefficients, design actions Serviceability limit states. Deflections, vibrations Ultimate limit states Design load-carrying capacities, material partial coefficients 3.2. Design of members - Beams: bending, tension and compression parallel and perpendicular to grain - Columns - Tapered beams, curved beams, frames - I- and box beams - Stress-skin panels - Wall, roof and floor diaphragms 3.3. Design of joints General load-bearing capacities (Johansson's theory and its limits). Detailing rules. - Nails - Bolts - Dowels - Screws - Fasteners - Punched metal plate fasteners - Hangers, nailing plates,3-dimensional fittings
