RE: GLB allowable stress

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I believe, it is the very old AITC code which is curently called ANSI/AITC
A190.1. When I had one of these, I made a conservative estimate for Fb and
Fv and luckily it worked. You may wish to contact AITC <> .

Subject: GLB allowable stress

I have an old drawing of a wood framed roof plan.  It calls for GLB 5.125 x
24 beams.  The notes said "GLB... shall be manufactured in accordance with
commercial standard CS-253".  The building is circa 1970.  Anyone know how I
can find out what was the allowable stress on those GLB beams?  Thanks.
