Description: COM-PLY 2 x 4 studs made with veneers of yellow-poplar, sweetgum, and white oak were tested for strength and stiffness, nail-holding properties, modulus of elasticity of component parts, static bending, and compression parallel and perpendicular to the grain. All tests were conducted according to performance standards for composite studs used in exterior walls or ASTM standards. Results indicated that the tested properties of COM-PLY 2 x 4's with any of the htree hardwood veneers are comparable to those of the COM-PLY 2 x 4's with southern pine veneers and to 2 x 4's of solid wood.
Keywords: Modulus of elasticity, stengh, stiffness, bending, compression, nail-holding ability, veneer, particleboard.
