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 builds on the knowledge obtained from previous courses Glued Laminated Timber Fundamentals and Glued Laminated Timber Design Values, Adjustment Factors, and Beam Design and will provide the student with the tools necessary to evaluate structural glued laminated timber columns and beam-columns. In addition, the analysis of glulam tension members and members subject to combined bending and tension loads will be addressed.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained
