RE: Glulam Design Source

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There is no information that I'm aware of for gaining capacity with gluing
or side lap nailing.

Thanks for pointing out this reference.

As I read section I can consider some diaphragm action from wood
decking if the boards are nailed per table 4.2.C. The table doesn't mention
anything about gluing the T & G of the boards together, not does it require
any side lap nailing of the boards at a particular interval. Is that
correct? Is there any documentation of increasing the diaphragm shear by
gluing or side lap nailing?
