LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) is a type of engineered wood product that is made by layering thin wood veneers together with adhesive. It is strong, stable and is often used in construction for beams, headers, and rim board. To calculate the weight of the LVL, one can use the formula:
LVL = L * W* T/12 * 41
Where: LVL is the weight of the Laminated Veneer Lumber in pounds L is the length of the LVL in feet W is the width of the LVL in feet T is the thickness of the LVL in inches 41 is the weight of one cubic foot of LVL
This formula is based on the basic principle of calculating the volume of a rectangular prism. The length, width, and thickness of the LVL are multiplied together to give the total volume of the LVL. This volume is then multiplied by the weight of one cubic foot of LVL to determine the total weight of the LVL.
An online LVL weight calculator can also be used to easily determine the weight of the LVL by inputting the dimensions of the LVL, and the calculator will provide the weight in pounds.
