Course Description: As an engineered wood construction material, glulam (structural glued laminated timber) has been used in the United States for over seventy-five years. Beginning with a definition of glulam and a description of the manufacturing process, this course will then cover glulam specification and shared design responsibility between the design team and glulam manufacturer before concluding with a consideration of design issues specific to curved glulam. Codes (including fire safety), AITC standards, shared responsibility case studies, and how to design specific curved shapes will all be discussed.
