North American Practice in Glue Laminated Timber Bridges

The background development and advantages of this form of construction are described and the range of bridge types and span dimensions currently used in North America and elsewhere are given. Materials used for glue lamination are discussed with respect to timber species and grades, timber preservatives and adhesive types, in terms of North American and British specifications. The manufacturing process is described, as are the quality control procedures necessary to achieve a high standard of lamination. T.M. Wardle
