Concise Eurocodes: Timber, aids engineers in their transition from the previous standards to the new Eurocodes, by providing a briefer and more accessible presentation of the key design procedures associated with EC 5 Timber.
Structural Eurocodes are a suite of design codes which will harmonize technical specifications for building and civil engineering works across Europe. Their introduction in March 2010 required the withdrawal of more than 50 British Standards. The change has been described as 'the single most important change to construction standards ever'. Going forward, it is expected that Eurocodes will not just dominate building design in the UK and mainland Europe, but also have a major impact on many other parts of the World. For Consulting Engineers the transition in structural design procedures from a British Standard to the replacement Eurocode constitutes a major programme of work for any construction material. Concise Eurocodes assists Consulting Engineers in this task, by providing a briefer and more accessible presentation of the design procedures associated with the relevant Eurocode under examination: a) It is laid out in the same Code format as the Eurocodes and maintains the same sections as the Eurocodes albeit with most sections being reduced in length. b) It does not cover the less frequently used components as well as not addressing the more complex analytical techniques (e. g. second order effects). c) It directly incorporates the Nationally Determined Parameters of the National Annex to the relevant Eurocode as well as some of the more important non-contradictory complementary information (NCCI). d) It contains cross-references, from the BS clause to the associated clause in the relevant Eurocode (or its National Annex), EN 1990 (or its National Annex) or related Published Document.
