Fire resistance is a very important aspect of the design of timber structures. Timber is a material with good performances in fire conditions compared to other structural materials: it has a better than steel! The aim of the video lesson is understanding how to verify a section and a connection of an exposed timber structural member with Eurocode 5. Moreover, it is explained how to correctly detail a timber structure to achieve the correct fire resistance.

The video lesson will be structured in the following way:
- Fire resistance of timber structures: how to verify a timber member and a connection according to Eurocode 5 – 20 min
- Technical details and solutions to achieve the fire resistance of a timber structure – 35 min
The video lesson is going to be available to watch for the whole day, the 30th of June (it is a recorded video lesson). Invest an hour of your time to be updated on the last solutions for fire design.
The course is especially for students, engineers, architects and designers who wish to learn more about the fire resistance of timber structures. This is part of a series of webinars designed for 2022 and, on this occasion, it is free of charge.
You will receive the link to watch the video on June 29th.
