Stability of domestic dwellings.

  A comparative study of typical UK timber frame domestic dwellings is carried out in relation to
system stability. The concepts of stiffness proportionality, redundancy, continuity and robustness
are explored in relation to current UK timber frame design detailing. In particular the application
of BS EN 1995 for the design of the sole plate to foundation connection is considered with
guidance given to allow safe but economical design from information which is normally available
from suppliers.
