CIV E 662 - Structural Timber Design

★ 3 (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

Faculty of Engineering

The objective of this course is to provide students with a solid understanding of wood as a structural material and an in-depth review of design provisions in Canadian timber design standards for selected members, connections and assemblies. The topics covered include basic wood characteristics, physical and mechanical properties of wood, a review of traditional and modern engineered wood products, and design of timber members subjected to bending and axial loads, connections and lateral load resisting systems. This course will help prepare students for graduate thesis research in a timber engineering topic and for performing structural design of timber structures. Prerequisite: Structural engineering background at BSc level.
