WOOD MOMENT FRAMES

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have found it virtually impossible to design wood moment frames with sawn 
lumber.  Glu Lam can be fabricated into a moment frame.

Too many bolts or other connectors are required, bolt holes enlarge due to 
wood shrinkage, and moment connections will induce tension perpendicular to 
grain.
