Timber code check

The main data for the design of timber elements is the Timber Code Check window. The window consists of the tables:


Structural member definition:

SM def. (Structural member definition) indicates structural members and maximum unity check results.

Timber code check: Structural member definition



General indicates check types for timber elements, monitor geometrical data of members, modify climate and load duration classes and other data corresponding with maximum unity check result.

Cross Check:

Cross check indicates calculation data results of holding force of the cross-section and forces. UC Cross displays check results of member strength, whereas UC max indicates the maximum unity check result.

Lateral buckling:

​Lateral buckling indicates the restraints of begin and end of the member, the position of lateral buckling supports in respect to the upper and lower flange of the member and the load attachment point. After calculating, the maximum result of unity check is reproduced in the table.

​Stability indicates stability check results of timber elements: the general stability of bending elements and the stability of compressed elements. UC max indicates the maximum unity check results of holding force of an element.

Deflection indicates deflection check results. The second column shows which Rare combination is decisive. Structure type column is filled in by structure geometry analysis and it is also possible to choose other type of structural member from the drop-down list. Proper check types for each member can be chosen from Check type drop-down list. It is also possible to use Camber for deflection reducing and choose Camber function type (Parabolic or Three points). In the next few columns limit values of deflection (dependent on Code) and check results are represented. Values in column "X" show in what place maximum deflection was detected.
