Summary
Timber structures are experiencing a revelation in the build environment due to new technologies and production techniques. However, the longest spans created with timber structures still don't compete with the span widths of structures made of steel. This thesis provides a preliminary design for the long-span football stadium roof structure of The New Feyenoord stadium, which expends far beyond the existing maximum spans of timber structures. The aim is to provide insight in the feasibility of a long-span structure in timber.
