My situation is this:
I have a large horizontal (parallel to
grain) shear in a glulam (caused by gravity loads, and uplift loads). I plan on
using two rows of 3/4" bolts to resist this shear, with two steel
Using NDS, p. 73, Table 8.3D, normally the
tables would have Z values parallel and perp. to grain, ie, with the ||
symbol for parallel to grain. But in this table, at least in my copy, instead of
these symbols as subscripts I have " 1/2 1/2" and "^" ?? Am I to assume this is
just a typo?
Is their anything I should know about shear
connections parallel to grain in glulam? Is their any problems if the bolts end
up at the lamination layer, or do I need a note not to install the bolts at the
