Boise Cascade has a prescriptive limit in our software limiting multiple members to a total width of 7”. This limit is intended for our customers and other designers that are not engineers, in order to limit applications that may be controlled by torsion. If the member is loaded somewhat equally from both sides, we would not object to such an application if designed by a licensed engineer. Unfortunately though, BC Calc will not analyze such a member.
