Structural glued laminated timber (glulam) is a material that combines the warmth and beauty of wood with modern engineering to create structures for the most demanding applications. From short-span headers and beams in residential construction, to graceful exposed arches and curved beams in churches, to long span beams and trusses for commercial spaces, glulam has the answer.

This three-hour course will provide the timber engineer with the knowledge necessary to properly detail connections to minimize the occurrence of member failure modes at connections. Procedures for the evaluations of connections loaded in the parallel-to-grain and perpendicular-to-grain directions will be presented. While the focus of this course is structural glued laminated timber, the principles taught are applicable to solid sawn lumber and other engineered wood products, as well.

This course builds on the knowledge obtained from previous courses Glued Laminated Timber Fundamentals; Glued Laminated Timber Design Values, Adjustment Factors, and Beam Design; and Glued Laminated Timber Connection Design Overview. It is recommended that the student prepare for this course by reviewing the material presented in the earlier courses.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Calculate the required bearing length for a bearing connection
  • Calculate the shear design capacity of a glulam member at a bearing connection
  • Evaluate a glulam member with a notch on the tension face at the end support
  • Evaluate a glulam member with a notch or taper cut on the compression face at the end support
  • Determine the design capacity of a member at a connection using mechanical fasteners to support a member loaded perpendicular-to-grain
  • Calculate member design capacities for net section failure, row tear-out, and group tear-out at connections loaded parallel-to-grain
  • Design bolt spacing to prevent row and group tear-out

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 30 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
