comm#780--Re: FiRP Reinforced Glulam Beams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
ICBO Report 5100 is concerned with glulam beams reinforced with fibers glued
under the exterior laminations of the beam (tension and compression zones).
It was submitted to ICBO by American Laminators (Duco-Lam) in Oregon.  Does
anyone have experience with this product, or know of any other laminators?
They list carbon, aramid, and fiberglass as possible reinforcing materials.
I'm concerned with creep with these materials.  Can anyone shed light on
that aspect?

Thanks in advance.
