KB 001675 | Timber Column Design per the CSA O86-19 Standard


First Steps with RFEM

First steps

We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the RFEM program.


Using the RF-TIMBER CSA module, timber column design is possible according to the CSA O86-19 standard. Accurately calculating timber member compressive resistance and adjustment factors is important for safety considerations and design. The following article will verify the factored compressive resistance in the RFEM add-on module RF-TIMBER CSA using step-by-step analytical equations per the CSA O86-19 standard including the column modification factors, factored compressive resistance, and final design ratio.
