DescriptionBeams glues up from southern pine veneers were strongest and stiffest when assembled with the stiffest laminae in the outer portions and the most limber in the center. The beams, 100 inches long, were laminated from 21 1/3-inch thick S4S veneers, 3 inches wide. The veneers were sawn from heartcenter cants cut from 26-year-old plantation-grown slash pines.
