Exova BM TRADA has announced a new course covering the fundamentals of timber frame construction aimed at engineers, timber frame designers and architects.
The one-day course will take place at Exova BM TRADA’s High Wycombe headquarters on Thursday 14th April and Wednesday 2nd November.
The day will begin with an introduction to timber construction, including timber frame, SIPs and engineered timber; methods of construction, such as open panel, closed panel and volumetric; processes for identifying various system components; differential movement; the manufacture of elements; and best practices for connecting elements.
Delegates will also gain knowledge on the principles of timber engineering; guidance on both British and European standards; key characteristics of timber and related materials; and examples of engineering input and design to support the concepts discussed.
The programme will be hosted by Dr Keerthi Ranasinghe, Principle Structural Engineer and Eurocodes Consultant for Exova BM TRADA.
Dr Ranasinghe has a wide range of experience in structural investigations and regularly delivers CPD talks and workshops on Eurocode 5 at the Institution of Structural Engineers, UK.
