How do laminated beams work?

Laminated structures are known to be strong. But how do they transfer or distibute the weight. What properties do laminates have to accomplish their strength?

Because the load gets evenly spread then the weight is shared across the structure and this means that it is quite strong and can support a good weight.

Also the molecular structure at the atomic level of the materials in the laminates and the strength of the bonds also endows them relatively with strength.
