Fire Resistance in Timber Structures

Engineered Training Solutions Logo

Organisation profile

Engineered Training Solutions provides a variety of CPD courses to engineers. Our range of one day events are perfect for those looking to improve their understanding of crucial civil and structural engineering areas.     

Training aim

The aim is to educate all participants on fire resistance in timber structures.

Learning objectives

This course will provide an overview of some of the key technical considerations those involved with timber structures should consider in relation to fire protection.

Several areas will be covered leaving delegates with a more rounded appreciation of fire resistance including the  design of key elements, and a preview of what the next generation of Eurocode 5 will look like. 

Course outline

Design of linear members
Design of timber frame assemblies
Design for separating function
News about the next generation of Eurocode 5
