In this webinar, Dr Keerthi Ranasinghe, Principal Engineer – Structural Timber, Warringtonfire, and Ishan Abeysekera, Senior Engineer, Arup, use their knowledge and understanding of structural steel to explain how to design in timber. Each key attribute that is handled differently, e.g. vibration, will be looked at to compare and contrast the difference between steel and timber. They will show where to find the calculation methods in more detail in tables and sections of Eurocode 5 and elsewhere.

This event will not require you to participate with video and audio. However, questions submitted during the webinar will be answered in the panel Q&A at the end of the session. Please note: This webinar will not be available as a recording.
