I have a situations where connection jack trusses to the bottom of a 28.5" glulam beam would be convenient. the jack truss is only carrrying 400# at the glulam. I know that shear in cross grain tension below the neutral axis is not optimal. I'm also aware of ANSI/TPI 1-2002/2007 talks about this kind of connection, but does not include glulams and other materials.
Does anyone have any comments on this and/or sources for understanding this type of connection better?
