Modelling Guide for Timber Structures

The definitive guide for timber structure modelling brings together the experience gained from recently built timber projects, and the latest research development in the modelling of timber structures. It will support the application and development of timber construction given that timber structures increasingly require demonstration of performance or equivalency through computer modelling, regardless of whether prescriptive or performance-based design procedures are used.

Chapter 8 of this guide has been published by FPInnovation (Dec 2022) following the work performed by research project “Progressive collapse (robustness) resistance of tall timber frame buildings with CLT floors” which was funded (partially) by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council (ARC) Research Hub for Advanced Solutions to Transform Tall Timber Buildings (project number: IH150100030).
