Timber Analysis and Design (P401)

Online Training Registration


S-TIMBER is a finite element-based solution used to analyze and design timber structures or individual timber members. This introductory class uses S-TIMBER to teach model, analyze and design timber structures. Topics include an overview of 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 shearwalls and joist diaphragms. Participants will gain experience with working with selection tools and spreadsheets, running analysis and code-checks and interpreting the design results (graphical and tabular). By the end of this class, participants will have gained enough familiarity with S-TIMBER to begin using the software productively.
