Eurocode 5: Design of timber structures

BS EN 1995

BS EN 1995 has three parts covering common rules and rules for buildings, structural fire design and bridges.

BS EN 1995 uses the limit state concept, unlike the present BSI timber codes that use the permissible stress method. Although BS 5268, the BSI code, is essentially a 'slide-rule' code, BS EN 1995 will require software etc. for the designer.
