Title: Simulation of hardwood log sawing

Author: Richards, D.B.; Adkins, W.K.; Hallock, H.; Bulgrin, E.H.;

Date: 1979

Source: Research Paper FPL-RP-355. Madison, WI: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory. 8 pages

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Mathematical modeling computer programs for several hardwood sawing systems have been developed and are described. One has judgment capabilities. Several of the subroutines are common to all of the models. These models are the basis for further research which examines the question of best-grade sawing method in terms of lumber value yield.
