Effect of Volume Factor for Glulam Cantilever

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anyone know what is the appropriate length (L) to use when calculating the volume factor for just the cantilever portion of a double cantilevered glulam beam?  The AITC Timber Construction Manual states that (L) is the "length of bending member between points of zero moment" so, for example, when adjusting the allowable stresses for a 6'-0" cant. can you discount the 21/L portion of the volume factor?
