Publication Series: Book Chapter

Description: The purpose of the work reported in this chapter was to examine the flexural properties of LVL manufactured from ultrasonically rated red maple veneer sheets. The specific objectives were: 1. to determine the flatwise and edgewise bending properties of ½ inch-(1.3-cm-) thick red maple LVL billets, and 2. to examine the relationship between nondestructive parameters of red maple veneer and flexural properties of LVL billets.

Keywords: Ultrasonic testing, flexure, elasticity, veneers, veneering, elastic properties, laminated wood, testing, red maple, LVL, bending strength
