Students understand the particulars when using structural timber members. They are capable to dimension simple timber structures and to choose connection solutions in accordance to given requirements. They understand the requirements of constructive timber protection and fire protection as well. They consider those in design and construction. Students are capable to dimension basic timber structures (e.g. frameworks, roof structures, frames, basic bridges) and to conduct required limit state analyses. They can elaborate appropriate connection details.
