Practical Timber Frame Design - 434

300.00

Less focused on hands-on project work, this seminar digs into methods, considerations, and engineering of timber frame design for utility and agricultural buildings. Sizing of rafters, floor joists, beams and posts for typical farm building applications is covered, and design tables for this use, based on locally harvested timber species are provided. Bracing considerations are examined. Models – both physical and digital – are demonstrated as design tools. Preparation of drawings is shown as an integral part of the process. Joint designs and strength are focal points. Joints are broken under controlled observation and measurement to demonstrate behavior.
