Eurocode 5: Design of timber structures. General. Common rules and rules for buildings

Status : Current   Published : December 2004



What is this standard about?

BS EN 1995-1-1:2004+A2:2014 outlines general design rules for timber structures used in building and civil engineering works.

Who is this standard for?

  • Structural engineers
  • Civil engineers
  • Designers/Architects
  • Manufacturers/producers of construction/timber products
  • The timber market and any market where timber components are used
  • The software systems industry (that produces solutions for design and construction and operation of infrastructure)

Why should you use this standard?

BS EN 1995-1-1:2004+A2:2014 explains how aspects of the design process should be implemented specifically for timber structures. It sets out certain aspects of design that are important for timber but not relevant to other structural materials such as how to allow for the effects of duration of load and moisture content.

The standard can be applied to the design of buildings in timber (solid timber, sawn, planed or in pole form, glued laminated timber or wood-based structural products, e.g. LVL) or wood-based panels jointed together with adhesives or mechanical fasteners.

What’s changed since the last update?

BS EN 1995-1-1 has been fully revised by experts to bring it up to date with the latest technological developments in timber and industry best practice.
