By definition, structural glued laminated members comprise an assembly of wood laminations in which the grain of all laminations is approximately parallel longitudinally and the laminations are bonded with adhesives. In addition, all laminations must be stress graded, production methods must meet exacting standards, and the adhesive used must develop a bond strength equal or greater than the strength of the wood—the basic assumption in all structural glue laminating. Laminating, as discussed in this paper, will be with reference to the above definition and requirements only, and will not include cross bonding of laminations such as plywood or veneering.
