Re: Cutting a Glulam Beam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think there will be no problem as long as the allowable stresses and 
deflections are not exceeded.  Check the glulam for negative tension at the 
top directly above the new post.  Glulam designed for bottom tension are 
sometimes weaker at the top. Or intentionally weaken it or cut it so you will 
have to simple beams rather than continouos beam.
