In timber designs where the structure is an integral part of the architecture, detailing for trusses and member intersections can be particularly challenging. Presented by renowned timber specialists, this workshop will provide insight relevant to both engineers and architects on heavy timber trusses, glulam post and beam and mass timber component connections.
Timber truss topics include an overview of heavy timber truss configurations, guidance on their applications and important design considerations.
An introduction to modern timber connections will review guiding principles of mass timber connections, custom and prefabricated hardware, codes, and design considerations using project examples. Among topics included are methods for achieving fire resistance, design simplicity and construction efficiency.
