Description: This paper focuses on the characterization and the performance of glued laminated (glulam) timber beams manufactured from machine stress graded Norwegian spruce in comparison to developing CEN standards. Material property testing indicated that the supplied laminating timber can be represented by two CEN strength classes, C37-14E and C30-12E, with about 50% yield in each class. Beams constructed from these grades exhibited strength and stiffness meeting the requirements of CEN combinations LH35, LH40 and LC38.
Keywords: Glulam, glued laminated beams, Norway spruce, CEN standards
