Timber Frame Roof and Truss Engineering
The course focuses on the traits that make engineering of roof framing more challenging. Topics such as mitigating eave thrust as well as unbalanced loading will be covered, culminating in the sizing of members and connections for a king post truss. Investigation of other truss forms will be provided as time allows. Geared toward those already familiar with basic engineering principals and construction geometry, it will also be applicable for those who have successfully completed an introductory course (offered the day prior).
