Title: Correlating off-axis tension tests to shear modulus of wood-based panels

Author: Saliklis, Edmond P.; Falk, Robert H.

Date: 2000

Source: Journal of structural engineering. (May 2000): Pages 621-625

Publication Series: Not categorized

Description: The weakness of existing relationships correlating off-axis modulus of elasticity E q to shear modulus G 12 for wood composite panels is demonstrated through presentation of extensive experimental data. A new relationship is proposed that performs better than existing equations found in the literature. This relationship can be manipulated to calculate the shear modulus G 12 of orthotropic specimens such as wood-based panels solely from off-axis tension (or compression) tests. The proposed relationship reduces to classical theory for the isotropic case. In all cases tested, the newly proposed relationship is a better fit to the data than the traditional orthotropic elasticity equation.

Keywords: Shear modulus, modulus of elasticity, tension tests, wood composite panels
