Discussion on The Versatility of Glued-Laminated Timber by Mr. C.J. Mettem

The Chairman I am not sure whether I saw a particular reference in the paper to a question I should like to ask. We are talking about a system of construction that is of comparatively modem origin. How has the design of adhesives used in gluedlaminated construction kept pace with the growth of the magnitude of the structures that are now possible? Or is that particularly relevant?
