X-Beam

X-BeamArchitectural appearance X-Beam is 3-1/2" and 5-1/2" wide glulam that fits flush with standard framing and is available in conventional and I-Joist depths.

Design Values:

 Attribute Value
 Layup Combination 24F-V4
 Flexural Stress Fb (psi)2
 Tension Zone
2,400
 Flexural Stress Fb (psi)2 -
 Compression Zone
1,850
 Compression Perpendicular
 to Grain Fc1 (psi)
650
 Shear Fv (psi)3 265
 MOE (106 psi) - Apparent 1.8
 MOE (106 psi) - True 1.9


Notes:

  1. Fb shall be adjusted by the volume effect factor using the following formula: Cv = (5.125/b)1/10 x (12/d)1/10 x (21/L) 1/10 < 1.0 where: b = beam width (in), d = beam depth (in), L = beam length (ft)
  2. For non-prismatic members, notched members, members subject to impact or cyclic loading, or shear design of bending members at connections (NDS-05 3.4.3.3), the design shear (Fv) shall be multiplied by a factor of 0.72.
  3. The Fv values do not include adjustments for checking.
