A major structural elements – Las Vigas

Las Vigas, a major structural elements

The beams are pieces of wood, iron or reinforced concrete, which are placed horizontally within the structure, based on two points and are designed to withstand loads. The beams are subjected to bending stresses, therefore the materials they are built to withstand tensile and compressive at the same time. Since no material is completely rigid, the beams tend to bend, thus compressing the upper half and lower half is pulled.

Materials for beams:

The beam construction has been made with various materials throughout history. Wood was the most appropriate material is used, it supports tensile important, unlike other Read the rest of this entry »

Plywood is made up of planks of wood glued together and attached to pressure

The manufacture of laminated beams is a conceptually simple process. That is to produce increased resistance of solid elements, consisting of boards glued severally reduced thickness so that you can not separate or identify the work of each sheet. To do this you must use dry wood, suitable adhesive, apply the appropriate pressure and perform the operation in a workshop with Read the rest of this entry »

Incredible modern structural laminated wood beams work

Structural laminated wood beams

What is a plywood beam?
The structural glulam beams are pieces of rectangular cross-section of fixed width and height constant or variable and straight or curved axis, consisting of sheets or tables in an irreversible with a strong adhesive or glue and bonded under pressure. The glulam beams do not, under any circumstances, nails or staples as binding elements of the tables.

The adhesive bonding is more effective, carries no decrease in the effectiveness section and in some cases increases the nominal resistance of the sections.

Such beams have greater strength and rigidity than dimensional lumber, this means that large gaps can be achieved with minimal need for intermediate supports.

It also means that builders, engineers and architects are endless design using laminated beams, either in construction applications for housing, commercial roofs for storage or bridges.

Characteristics of Structural Glulam
Currently, the plywood is a material that has achieved a dramatic technical development and its benefits far outweigh those offered by other building materials. This new product has a Read the rest of this entry »
