The strength of glulam beams with holes - A survey of tests and calculation methods

Danielsson, Henrik LU (2007) In Report TVSM TVSM-3068.
Abstract
A compilation of available test results relating to the strength of

glulam beams with holes is presented. A total of 182 individual

tests from 8 different sources are described concerning material,

test setup and recorded crack loads and failure loads. A brief

description of some available methods for strength analysis of

timber is given and specific calculation approaches for the strength

of glulam beams with holes are compiled. Design rules according to

some European codes are reviewed and compared to experimental test

results. Fundamentally different design approaches are found among

the reviewed codes and the comparison reveals significant
