Title (EN) METHOD OF MAKING LAMINATED WOOD BEAMS WITH VARYING LAMINATION THICKNESS THROUGHOUT THE THICKNESS OF THE BEAM
(FR) PROCEDE DE FABRICATION DE POUTRES EN BOIS LAMELLE AVEC VARIATION D'EPAISSEUR DES LAMELLES DANS L'EPAISSEUR DE LA POUTRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of forming a laminated beam includes assembling a plurality of individual wood laminations in a juxtaposed relationship, and joining the assembled laminations together to form a laminated beam. The assembled laminations define a tension zone of individual wood laminations, a core zone of individual wood laminations, and a compression zone of individual wood laminations. The average thickness of the laminations in the tension zone is less than the average thickness of the laminations in the core zone, and the average thickness of the laminations in the compression zone is less than the average thickness of the laminations in the core zone.
(FR)Pour le procédé de réalisation de poutre lamellée de l'invention, on assemble une pluralité de lamelles de bois indépendantes selon un ordonnancement à juxtaposition, puis on réunit les lamelles assemblées de façon à former une poutre lamellée. Les lamelles assemblées définissent, pour chaque lamelle prise isolément, une zone de tension, une zone noyau, et une zone de compression. L'épaisseur moyenne des lamelles dans la zone de compression est inférieure à l'épaisseur moyenne des lamelles dans la zone noyau.
