I have a glulam beam overstressed in flexure. Anyone have any great retrofit ideas?
I know almost nothing about glu-lam, but I do know some things about fixing overstress. The sequence is everything: find the source of the overload and fix that; then fix the beam. Nothing 'just breaks,' no matter what the laity says. If you don't find the reason, you don't know if you're actually fixing the problem.
