Behavior of Structural Composite Lumber T-Beam Bridge Girders ...Recent innovation in the engineered wood industry has produced structural composite lumber (SCL) that achieves excellent strength, stiffness, and efficient use of wood. Product variations of SCL, such as laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and parallel strand lumber (PSL), are currently being used in transportation to produce bridge girders and decks for rural and other low traffic volume roads. Although the elastic and shear properties of SCL are available, no attempt has been made to ...

Structural Composite - CWC - The Canadian Wood Councilstructural composite lumber: An engineered wood product designed for structural use, SCL is manufactured from wood strands or veneers bonded with adhesives and created using a layering technique where the outcome is a block known as a billet. Similar to conventional sawn lumber and timber, SCL products are used for common structural applications and include laminated veneer lumber (LVL), parallel strand lumber (PSL), laminated strand lumber (LSL) and oriented strand ...

Laminated veneer lumber - WikipediaLVL belongs to the category of engineered wood called structural composite lumber. Other members of this category are parallel strand lumber (PSL) and laminated strand lumber (LSL). All members of this category are strong and predictable, and are thus interchangeable for some applications. PSL is made from veneers that are cut up into long strands and oriented parallel to its length before compressed into its final shape. LSL is
