Check formation in weathered glulam beams: preventive construction techniques, surface treatments and impregnation treatments

Recommendations are presented based on studies of beech and spruce beams exposed to direct weathering (in Switzerland) for up to 5 yr.

Three glulam segments of spruce laminations were exposed to direct weathering and monitored continuously for temp. and humidity at different depths of the cross section. The laminations of 2 of the specimens were incised and pressure-treated with...
