, or glue-laminated timber, is the same engineered wood used in the new Mactan International Airport.
webs made of Picea abies, with a strength class of GL28 h .
The smoke treatment is one choice for reducing the use of more toxic preservatives to increase glulam
resistance to subterranean termite attack.
It was introduced the following elastic constants: elastic modulus parallel to grain E0, modulus of elasticity across the grain [E.sub.90], shear modulus [G.sub.0], Poisson coefficient [[mu].sub.90.0], [[mu].sub.0.90], which are determined on specimens made of glulam
beams of frames after the test.
All the hidden metalwork connecting the glulam
and visible stainless steel was made by an engineer a mile up the road.
Made from sticking together smaller pieces of wood to create structural elements with a higher tensile strength than steel, glulam
can resist compression better than concrete, but weighs a lot less and is more sustainable.
That same year, Johnsson, Blanksvard and Carolin  worked on some glulam
members strengthened by carbon fibre reinforcement by first running pull-out tests on four pairs of glulam
members at four different anchoring lengths.
The team proposed using glulam
, which would be able to withstand fire in a similar fashion to steel.
The group is visiting the Middle East to witness the engineering marvels undertaken with New Zealand timber and products such as glulam
(glued laminated timber manufactured to engineered standards) in this region.
Project materials include structural glulam
beam stringers, walnut treads and risers, sapele grip rail and newel in fills, forged steel balustrade.
The roof is supported by distinctive tapering Glulam
beams, flitch plates and steel cruciform columns.
Engineered wood composites such as glulam
and LVL are increasingly used in conditions with moderate decay hazard such as indoor swimming pools and ice arenas, supporting building overhangs and sometimes projecting beyond the roof-line.
