Structural timber can be helpful to any type of construction and has a lot of long term and short term benefits. Environmentally safe: Wood is a safe product because it is carbon neutral, especially structural timber which has the lowest embodied CO2 compared to other construction materials. With few exceptions the structural wood products used in bridge applications throughout North America are manufactured primarily from softwoods. Although hardwoods are not widely used at this time, structural grading procedures for hardwoods have been developed recently, and their use is increasing in some regions of the country.

The system of stress grading is fundamental to the structural use of timber 1,2,8. Visual grading: stress grades determined by the inherent strength (strength group) of the species and the visual quality (grade) of the timber piece. The structural properties of individual stress grades are described in Australian Standard specifications 1,7. examples that detail the appropriate use of the equations for specific structural elements or systems in light, wood-framed construction. The discussion focuses primarily on framing with traditional dimension lumber but gives some consideration to common engineered wood products. Other wood framing.

Oct 09,  · The Structural Timber Association (STA) is the membership body which promotes the use of structural timber in buildings. As part of the drive to deliver sustainable materials and energy efficient. The Timber Design Guide by Dr Andrew Buchanan is a one-stop technical reference for engineers, architects and other professionals in the construction industry. The guide covers all aspects of timber design including the latest in high-rise and composite timber construction.
