Title: Structural composite panel performance under long-term load

Author: Laufenberg, Theodore L.;

Date: 1988

Source: Proceedings of the 1988 International Conference on Timber Engineering ... Seattle, Washington, U.S.A., September 19-22, 1988, Volume 1. Madison, Wis. : Forest Products Research Society, c1988: pages 531-537.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Information on the performance of wood-based structural composite panels under long-term load is currently needed to permit their use in engineered assemblies and systems. A broad assessment of the time-dependent properties of panels is critical for creating databases and models of the creep-rupture phenomenon that lead to reliability-based design procedures. This paper presents a broad background of information on the creep-rupture phenomenon by describing the microscopic mechanisms of creep-rupture, presenting models commonly used to describe creep deformation and time-to-failure behavior, and reviewing literature on structural particle boards, flakeboards, and plywood. A large test program and future research needs in the field are also described.

Keywords: Composite boards, structural components, loads, wood panels, creep, particleboards, flakeboard, plywood, time to failure, review article, literature reviews
