About the BS EN 1995-1-1 Timber Design Software

What design forces can be used?

The BS EN 1995-1-1 timber design tool allows the following design forces to be used as per Eurocode 5:

  1. Torsion
  2. Axial Force (P)
  3. Shear Force in Y and Z Directions
  4. Bending Force in Y and Z Directions

What results are available?

A wide range of results are available as both design values and utility ratios. The Eurocode 5 timber design calculator includes support for the following results:
