Timber Frame Engineering: An Introduction

Course Overview

Even the most simple timber frame structures require careful attention to basic engineering principles. Gain insight into how to design like a timber-framer but think like an engineer in this introductory course. Starting with a basic overview of how to determine the forces one can expect a traditional timber frame structure to see over the course of its lifetime, the course focus will transition into sizing individual timber beams, as well as basic joinery and connection design for common bent-style timber frames. Experience in design or fabrication of timber frames is not required, but basic math skills will be handy.
