Sample text

Likewise, a four-inch length of nominal 6 in. × 6 in. timber measures one board foot. The actual volume of a board foot of lumber varies significantly depending on the size of the piece. For example, a board foot of 2 × 6 lumber contains 99 in3 of wood, while a board foot of 8 × 14 lumber contains 130 in3 of wood. Structural glued laminated timber is measured based on the nominal dimensions of the input lumber. For example, a 5 18 in. × 12 in. Douglas fir glulam beam is manufactured from eight laminations of nominal 2 in.

Signs of the presence of termites are the earthen tubes, or runways, built by these insects from the ground over the surfaces of foundation walls to reach the wood above. In wood, the termites make galleries that follow the grain, often concealed by a shell of sound wood. Because the galleries seldom show on the wood surface, probing may be necessary to identify termite infestation and damage. Where subterranean termites are prevalent, the best protection is to prevent their gaining access to the building from the ground.

Drying checks are common and may be expected in sawn lumber. Drying checks may likewise be expected in glued-laminated members, though to a lesser extent due to the manufacturing process of the members. Glued-laminated members are manufactured using wood with controlled moisture contents generally close to the expected end use conditions of the members. Proper storage, handling, and final construction details of wood members will, in general, minimize checking. In cases where checking is considered severe, AITC Technical Notes 11 [35] and 18 [36] may be used to evaluate the structural significance of checking in glued-laminated members and ASTM D245 [37] provides some guidance for sawn members.
