[Roland Hernandez; Forest Products Laboratory (U.S.);] -- In bridge applications, it is often necessary to minimize the depth of the bridge structure to provide for the required hydraulic opening or reduce the volume of approach fill.

For bridges that. A study was conducted on five-lamination butt-jointed glued laminated timber (glulam) to assess the potential for using low-grade lumber for floor beams in residential construction.

An equation based on the equivalent notch method of notched wood beams was developed to predict the bending stiffness reduction caused by butt joints in the glulam. The homogenous glued laminated timber consists of laminations from the same strength classes, while the combined layup is made up from laminations of different strength classes.

In principle, combined glulam timber consists of arrangement of lamination with a higher strength class positioned at the outer zone of the beam to resist the highest Cited by: 2. Since the introduction of plywood and glued-laminated timber (glulam) beams more than a century ago, engineered wood has continuously progressed to provide greater strength, versatility, consistency, and many other attributes.

Today, the engineered wood category encompasses oriented strand board (OSB), strand and fiber siding, laminated strand lumber (LSL) I-joists, laminated veneer. The dry beams exhibited increases in stiffness of 24% and 32% and increases in ultimate moment capacity of 29% and 30% for one number 3 or number 4 bar, respectively, in the beam.

The wet beams also showed increases in stiffness on the order of 30% but showed no significant increases in strength. Novel internally LVL-reinforced glued laminated timber beams with large holes The boards belong either to a single strength, stiffness, and density class to form a so-called homogeneous glulam (GLh) or to a typically preferred combination of board strength classes, where higher grades Strength and stiffness of glued laminated timber beams book placed at the outer zones, known as combined glulam Author: Simon Aicher, Cristóbal Tapia.

Bending strength as well as stiffness of the glulam beams made out of the thermally modified beech wood were also studied and the results revealed that the thermal treatment of wood increases. Glued laminated timber (glulam) beams are highly engineered components manu-factured from specially selected and positioned lumber laminations of varying strength and stiffness properties.
