Enter the glulam length (ft), the width (ft), and the thickness (ft) into the Glulam Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Glulam Weight.

## Glulam Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Glulam Weight.

**GLW = L * W* T * 40.5782**

Variables:

- GLW is the Glulam Weight (lbs)
- L is the glulam length (ft)
- W is the width (ft)
- T is the thickness (ft)

## How to Calculate Glulam Weight?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Glulam Weight.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the glulam length (ft).
- The glulam length (ft) is calculated to be : 10.

- Next, determine the width (ft).
- The width (ft) is measured to be: 5.

- Next, determine the thickness (ft).
- The thickness (ft) is found to be: 5.

- Finally, calculate the Glulam Weight using the formula above:

GLW = L * W* T * 40.5782

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

GLW = 10 * 5* 5 * 40.5782 = 10,144 (lbs)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

glulam length (ft) = 12

width (ft) = 12

thickness (ft) = 12

Test your knowledge and check your answer with the calculator.

GLW = L * W* T * 40.5782 =** **(lbs)
