RE: 8x8 & 4x8

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You can add two beams together as long as you check the horizontal shear
between them and connect them accordingly.

Hi

I am trying to assist a contractor who purchased 8x8 beams instead of the
8x12 beam called for in the design.  Is it possible to add a 4x8 to the top
of the 8x8 by gluing and bolting the two members together?  Should the
allowable flexural strength be reduced?  Thanks for your help.

Gordon
