Laminated veneer lumber: a United States market overview


, : Laminated veneer lumber: a United States market overview. Wood and Fiber Science 26(4): 456-466

Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) is an all-veneer engineered wood product that has appeared in the marketplace as a replacement for increasingly scarce high quality solid-sawn lumber in structural applications. As one possible response to increasing environmental pressures, LVL is considered to be superior to recycled steel and plastic, concrete, stone, and brick in terms of energy requirements to produce.

Shearing properties of wall frameworks made of laminated-veneer lumber posts with hollow cores and reinforced with plywood. Because the shearing endurance was small for a bolted framework constructed from box-type posts manufactured from LVL, this type of wall was considered unsuitable for practical use. Addition of plywood panels (550x900 mm) to the top and/or bottom...
