Advanced Timber Framing is a comprehensive treatise on the history, design and construction of traditional timber frame roof systems. Beginning with the history and elements of natural design, author Steve Chappell unfolds the process of designing and building complex heavy timber frame roof systems beginning with the History and Evolution of medieval timber framing through the Design Theory, Layout and Joinery Execution. Using Geometry, Trigonometry and simple Mathematics, mixed with Harmonics and Musical overtones, this book is the most complete work ever written on the Architecture, Art, Design and Construction of Traditional Timber Frame Roof Systems. Along with detailed and colorful chapters on the history and evolution of timber frame roof systems, Chappell goes on to present a comprehensive and highly technical mathematical treatise on the approach to determine rotated angles in a compound roof system. These he unfolds in a sequence of axioms, which he has developed over the past 35 years through his experience of designing, building and teaching the Art of Complex Timber Frame Roof Systems. This book will have a broad appeal to the Architect, Engineer and Professional Builder, as well as to the novice or student interested in the history of the Architecture and Engineering of Traditional Timber Frames.Nota de la solapa:
Drawn from over 35 years of experience building and teaching advanced timber framing, this book combines both the nuance you would expect, and also a broad overview of the rich history of compound timber frame joinery. The work is divided into two parts: Book One: Design & History, and Book Two: Geometry & Joinery Systems.Book One begins with The Elements of Design. In this section, Chappell draws parallels between the significance of proper design proportions, harmonics and the feel that resonates between these elements and the craftsman's touch. Through the proportions of the golden mean, phi and the Fibonacci sequence, metaphors to music and the jazz of timber framing, Chappell begins to develop a design template that includes both sound and harmonic resonance as fundamental aspects of the design medium.In A Brief History of Roof Framing, Chappell then goes on to explore the early development and history of timber framed roof systems from the 12th century Stave Churches, medieval Tithe Barns and Market halls of Europe, to the ancient Pagodas of China and Japan. The focus is on discovering how and why the systems and techniques used to build vernacular medieval timber framed roof systems evolved on a regional basis.Book Two moves into the technical aspects of how to begin the process by first Developing the Geometric Model. Though the subject can be quite complex, the emphasis on developing a strong visual mental image at the outset is strengthened through the use of numerous photographs and illustrations. In The Vocabulary of Compound Joinery, the book goes on to thoroughly discuss a very broad variety of design options and joinery details for virtually any situation one may ever confront in constructing complex, joined timber framed roof systems.Chappell presents a complete and comprehensive geometric and mathematical system in this work. One that can be used to design virtually any conceivable arrangement of complex structural members that one may ever face—all using mortise and tenon joinery.
