Timber Design

Fast auto design and check are available to find the most suitable timber bar cross-sections and panel types.

Based on Eurocode 5 (EN 1995-1-1:2004), load-duration classes can be taken into account in the Timber design.
The load-duration classes are characterized by the effect of constant load acting for a certain period of time in the life of the structure.
For a variable action the appropriate class shall be determined on the basis of an estimate of the typical variation of the load with time.
Actions shall be assigned to one of the load-duration classes given for strength and stiffness calculations.

The following design considers EC5 (standard) and the National Annex (NA) for Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Norway, Poland, Rumania and Sweden. With the timber module arbitrary structures in space can be designed with regard to a 1st order or a 2nd order analysis. In the Code Check all checks prescribed in the codes depending on acting section forces are displayed.

Global Auto (timber bar) design (Calculate > Design calculations > Auto design all structural elements) finds the most suitable cross-section (from the profile range set at Auto design > Parameters) for all timber bars (columns, beams and truss members) based on their initial calculation parameters, internal forces and detailed utilization calculations. With Manual design you can run quick utilization check for given profiles by bar elements and/or design groups. You can also do quick Auto design by elements and design groups only instead of global design. Of course, any number of design cycles is executable, so the global Auto design can be combined with both previous and additional element-based Auto designs.

 

Global Auto (timber panel) design (Calculate > Design calculations > Auto design all structural elements) finds the most suitable type (from panel type range set at Auto design > Parameters) for all timber panels (plates and walls) based on internal forces and detailed utilization calculations. With Manual design you can run quick utilization check for given panel types by elements and/or design groups. You can also do quick Auto design by elements and design groups only instead of global design. Of course, any number of design cycles is executable, so the global Auto design can be combined with both previous and additional element-based Auto designs.
