Timber designers' manual, 3d ed. (reprint, 2002)
Ozelton, E.C. and J.A. Baird. Ed. by E.C. Ozelton.
This reference manual, a paperback reissue reprinted from the third edition published in 2002, covers the general and detailed design of structural timber, including shear deflection, creep, and dynamic and lateral stability considerations for flexural members. This edition is based on and updated to reflect the changes in British Standard BS 5268-2: 2002, "Code of Practice for permissible stress design, materials and workmanship," which brought design concepts closer to European practice and Eurocode 5, "Design of Timber Structures." The recent introduction of a range of composite solid timber sections and I-Beams from the US and Europe is reflected in chapters on thin web beams and structural composite lumber. Tables and coefficients are provided. The manual is meant for practicing engineers, civil engineering undergraduates, and timber manufacturers. Ozelton is a consulting engineer specializing in the design and detailing of all forms of timber engineering and timber frame construction in the UK. Baird is a Chartered Structural Engineer who has worked on BSI documents such as design code BS 5628.
