This manual provides a step-by-step approach to the detailing of timber, and deals with codes of practice from the UK, Europe, America and Russia. It provides practical and up-to-date information on various aspects of timber construction and covers the fundamentals of drawing and drafting practices, connections and fastening and structural detailing of various timber elements. The types of structures covered represent the bulk of the typical fabricator's work in timber structures such as buildings, bridges, grid-works, shells, folded plates etc. It includes some examples of timber detailing in CAD form as well as numerous line drawings and detailing sheets, the latter linked to international codes of practice.
