Characteristic bending strength of beech glulam

This project was carried out to derive the characteristic bending strength of beech glulam. 47 full size glulam beams with combined symmetrical lay-up were produced. For this purpose mechanical grading was used to classify the lamellae according to the dynamic MOE. The beams were tested according to EN 408. The bending strength exceeds 44,5 N/mm².
