enter image description hereBetween Glue Laminated and steel plate sandwiched between two wood beams, which one is more dimension-ally stable?

  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean which assembly is more stable? Please provide two sketches with load schedules, and tell us what is changing - temps, humidity, loads? $\endgroup$

I'm trying to understand what it means by dimensional stability. Both beams highlighted are engineered. So without having more detail information, which one is more stable dimension-ally? enter image description here

If you answer your question then that belongs here -- but this looks like an addendum to your question, which you should add to your question by editing it. $\endgroup$
