Main element types

TimberStruct can analyze all main element types which can be found in timber engineering , simply supported or over more supports.
It handles both prismatic and tapered beams, linear or curved.
The application is actively developed and many composite structures are foreseen, like archs, trusses and others.
For more complex cases, TimberStruct is able to handle generic elements using imported data coming, for example, from finite elements applications.
NEW : With latest updates we've introduced Timber-Concrete composite slabs, calculated with latest Rules and following university's test's data.

The application is progressing constantly and new calculation modules will be added based on present and future customers requests.

Load conditions

There are virtually no limits on number of load conditions that can be defined inside TimberStruct; each of them can be associated to a description, a load cathegory chosen among those contained inside used National Annex and loads duration, as contained in Eurocode 5.
It's then possible connect any number of loads to each load condition; TimberStruct will generate during calculation phase all possible load's combinations and find the most unfavourable one among them.

Element loads

With TimberStruct is possible to apply any kind of load on every element point.
The application handles any load contition given by Rules, including seismic actions and exceptional loads; elements can be in defiated flexure and, if needed, a fire resistance calculation can be done choosing any fire resistance time and/or exposition type.
TimberStruct handles buckling and instability calculations; for tapered and curved elements all radial stresses and resistances are also computed.
