Horizontal Shear in Glue-Lams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

NDS has published increased values for horizontal shear in glue-laminated beams.  The new value is 240 psi for typical static and transient dead, live, snow, wind and earthquake loadings.  Can this value still be increased 50 percent when the shear load is away from the end of the beam.  Also, I assume that the load duration factors can still be applied.
