Timber Analysis and Design (P401)


Online Training Registration

This introductory timber design class uses S-TIMBER to model, analyze and design timber structures. Topics include the S-TIMBER interface and settings, how to define materials and sections, how to model Sawn Lumber, Glulam, and CLT members, and how to model timber systems such as stud shear walls and joist diaphragms. Participants will gain experience working with selection tools and spreadsheets, running analysis, code-checks, and interpreting the design results. By the end of this class, participants will gain enough familiarity with S-TIMBER to use the software productively.
