Development of Design Recommendations to Minimize Timber Deck Panel Differential Deflection

The objective of this work is to develop design detail recommendations for minimizing differential panel deflection of glued-laminated timber panels used in bridge decks. This work will consist of developing, testing, and deploying design details to minimize differential panel defl ection. It is envisioned that these design details will be in a form suitable for
incorporation in national design recommendations and standards. To accomplish this, four general tasks will be completed: development of potential design details, laboratory testing of design details, deployment of design details, and final documentation.
