Holes represent a frequent construction necessity in load bearing members irrespective of the employed building material. Contrary to steel and reinforced concrete, holes in glued laminated timber beams, termed glulam, pose a delicate detailing and design task. The problems emanate from the expressed orthotropicity of the wooden material characterized by very low stiffness and tensile strength values perpendicular to the fiber direction. The complexity of the mechanical problem is the reason… CONTINUE READING
