Standards Australia has updated its suite of standards for timber structure design.
The updates include:
- an amendment to plywood panel shear strength design values based on the recent testing of structural plywood (AS 1720.1)
- a new publication on the design standard for nailplated timber roof trusses (AS 1720.5)
- the adoption of two international standards for the material properties which underpin the dowel-type fasteners design method (AS/NZS ISO 10984.1 and AS/NZS ISO 10984.2).
