(London) Delivered by bio-based structural design expert David Trujillo and Ramboll director Alan Dowdall, this webinar explores what can be achieved with timber design and discusses the unique characteristics of timber as a structural material.
The two speakers cover how timber is affected by direction of load application, moisture content, load duration, and fire. They also touch on the benefits of building in timber, how the industry works and delivering timber projects.
An additional webinar in this series covers principles of engineering timber structures for fire safety, and how these are being applied by practicing engineers in their building designs.
Speakers Alan Dowdall, a leading engineer, and Julie Bregulla, curator of a new website resource ‘timberfiresafety.org’, show how to make best use of this resource giving examples of completed award-winning projects along the way.
