This dtudy is intended to provide a further basis for assignment of design criteria for laminates manufactured from coast type Douglasfir and from Appalachian white oak wood. Emphasis is given to laminates containing knots and and knot holes and to laminates containing grain deviations on one and on two faces. The effects of knots and knot holes and their locations relative to the width of the laminate are separated. Flat and vertical grain laminations are included in the studies of Douglas-fir laminates.
