Course description:

  • The chemical and biological structure of wood.
  • Strength properties of wood.
  • Factors affecting the strength properties of the timber.
  • Scaling of the connections of wooden structures: calculation of carpenter-like, through-screw, ring and disc connections.
  • Axially loaded columns.
  • Torsional buckling effect of bended beams.
  • Skew bending of beam elements.
  • Viscous properties of wood.
  • Viscous material models.
  • Deformations of beams.
  • Relative displacements of connections.
  • Deformations of timber structures.
