Timber is a timeless construction material and there is a growing movement to use modern methods to repair and maintain heritage structures. What is the best approach in refurbishing timber-framed buildings and how can a modern engineer understand the approaches needed to undertake these processes?

In this new edition, David Yeomans explores structural assessment and repair of timber in buildings. It takes a practical approach to the topic and outlines a four-stage process for dealing with structures that may be exhibiting signs of distress; anamnesis, examination, diagnosis and treatment. It then covers methods and materials, surveys, structural analysis, strengths, joint and repair methods, offering a complete and holistic overview of repair tasks and methods.

This book also covers

- the types of timber and their characteristics
- specialist equipment
- oak frame building
- floor loads to timber structures
- traditional carpentry joints
- joints made with modern metal fasteners
- repairing with non-timber materials.

Repair of Historic Timber Structures will be essential reading for engineers, architects and building surveyors tasked with maintaining timber structures. This book will also appeal to conservation officers and building control officers.
