BS 5268, the British Standard for design of timber, contained most of the material properties of timber and related products within the standard. In line with other European Structural Design standards, Eurocode 5 does not list any properties for any of the constituent materials or timber related products within the standard. Eurocode 5 only details the design methodology to be used with any material.
