Timber Design

The Timber Design module in FEM-Design helps you find the most suitable timber bar cross-sections and panel types through fast auto-design and utilisation checks according to Eurocode 5.

The module can work with vast array of wood materials from cross laminated timber (CLT), fibre, oriented strand (OSB) and/or particle boards.

The simple User interface helps you examine bar and panel systems in a 3D environment whilst considering the realistic behaviour of wood materials with buckling and fire effects.

Timber Design Module Features

  • Timber design according to Eurocode 5

  • Easily check transitions and bends, as time classes and reduction factors for stiffness have already been considered in the 3D model

  • Automatic calculation of the buckling coefficient considering structural stiffness

  • Lateral torsional buckling and other essential stability checks

  • Ability to calculate model nonlinearly with initial curvature

  • Automatic profile optimisation and design for fire effects

  • Beams with variable cross section and apex check
