    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides a code of practice for the design and acceptance of timber structures and elements, and includes design methods and design data appropriate for commonly encountered structural elements and materials and requirements to be met for specification of the design, installation and maintenance of timber structures.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out limit state design methods for the structural use of timber, which are based on the principles of structural mechanics and on data established by research. It provides design data for sawn timber, laminated timber, timber in pole form, plywood, laminated veneer lumber and various types of fastenings. In addition, it provides methods of test for components or assemblies of unconventional design which may not be readily amenable to detailed analysis.For ease of use, the simpler design situations are set in the main body of the text. Related appendices, which form an integral part of the Standard, give acceptable procedures for detailed design situations.
