Timber bridges viable option for local roads

Fifteen fully loaded trucks per day typically cross a low-traffic county road bridge. To simulate this, the researchers applied a 32-kip, or 32,000 pounds-force, load to the middle of the bridge at a rate of one load per second. Credit: South Dakota State University Glulam timber bridges are viable and cost-effective options for replacing bridges on low-traffic county and township roads. That’s what researchers at the J. Lohr Structures Lab concluded after testing a full-scale glulam timber girder bridge. Glulam,…
