## Info

Design bending strength taking lateral torsional buckling effect into account, fmr.y.d

fmr.y.d — kcrit ■ fm.y.d fmr.y.d = 19.01 N/mm2 Bending strength of a glulam beam greater than the bending stress and is satisfactory for this loading condition

7. Shear strength of the beam plus the Vd = 33.62 kN Tv_d = 0.78 N/mm2

Shear strength is satisfactory

8. Bearing strength

The design load case will be due to a combination of self-weight of the beam plus the permanent and variable loading:

Design value of the end reaction, Reacd

Design bearing stress, ac 90 d (equation (4.22))

Design bearing strength, fc.90.d

Factored design bearing strength, kc.90 • fc.90.d = 1.94 N/mm2

Bearing strength is OK without need to use a higher value for kc.90

9. Beam deflection

### At the SLS the partial safety factor is 1.

As the member is material having the same creep properties, the mean value of stiffness will be used to derive the instantaneous and the final deflection of the beam. The greatest value of instantaneous deflection at the SLS will be associated with the largest value of bending moment and will be due to the characteristic combination of the self-weight of the beam plus the permanent and variable loading.

The design load case will be due to a combination of self-weight permanent and variable loading:

Design value of the end shear force,

Design shear stress, Tv.d (equation (4.16))

Design shear strength, fv.d (equation (6.4))
