Pitched Tapered Glu-Lam in a three pinned Arch

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I was taught 40 years ago never to have the tapered face of a glu-lam (the
face cutting the laminations) in tension.  If you do you will have
perpendicular to grain tension many times more than the allowable (15 psi
for Doug Fir) and certainly have a failure.
