Abstract
A database has been developed to support the expanding use of glulam in non-residential applications. The increase in the use of glulam requires high-value laminating lumber. Other wood products such as purlins and sheathing material usually are also required when glulam members are used in structure. The database contains test results on laminating lumber grades, finger joints, and 14t-E and 12c-E grade spruce/lodgepole pine/Jack pine glulam members, and theoretical and experimental results on glulam trusses with punched metal plate joints. This database is expected to provide the basis for reliability-based design values for glulam in the 1994 edition of the Canadian Engineering Design Standard for Wood (CSA-O86.1). It also makes possible a new glulam application, metal plated glulam trusses. It is anticipated that the engineering design community, glulam industry, laminating lumber producers, wood truss fabricators, and metal truss plate manufacturers will benefit from the technical information developed in this project.
