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 two-hour course is designed to familiarize the student with good detailing practice for connections in structural glued laminated timber (glulam). In addition, reference design values and adjustment factors for typical fasteners used in glulam connections will be discussed. 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 the previous course Glued Laminated Timber Fundamentals. It is recommended that the student prepare for this course by reviewing the material presented in the earlier course.
