Title: Data basic to the engineering of reconstituted flakeboard

Author: Geimer, Robert L.;

Date: 1979

Source: Proceedings of the Thirteenth Washington State University International Symposium on Particleboard, April 1979, Pullman, Washington.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Flakeboards made with uniform densities throughout their thickness and different degrees of flake alignment were used to establish relationships between bending, tension, and compression values of modulus of elasticity or modulus of rupture (or stress to maximum load) and the variables of specific gravity and flake alignment. An equation using sonic velocity as an indicator of alignment was developed that describes the relations over a broad range with a high degree of confidence. Bending stiffness of boards having a density gradient were predicted within approximately ± 20% using the derived relationships.

Keywords: Flakeboard, engineering design, flake alignment, bending, tension, compression values, modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture, specific gravity
