About the book

From 2 to 20 May 1993, lectures were presented at the Timber Engineering Workshop (TEW) which took place in Melbourne, Australia, to present the greater use of timber as a structural material and help satisfy the tremendous need in the developing countries for domestic, agricultural, industrial and commercial buildings. This series of publications serve to illuminate the benefits of timber as a structural material by providing scientific and detailed justification. They illustrate the economic feasibility for the use of timber to satisfy the tremendous need in the developing countries for domestic, agricultural, industrial and commercial buildings including structures such as bridges.
