Title: Effect of fiber surface and mechanical properties on the stiffness and strength of medium-density fiberboard

Author: Groom, Leslie H.; Mott, Laurence; Shaler, Stephen M.; Pesacreta, Tom;

Date: 1999

Source: Proceedings of the International Association of Wood Anatomists/International Union of Forestry Research Organizations; 1997 November; Westport, New Zealand. [Place of publication unknown]: [Publisher unknown]: 375-387.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The mechanical properties of wood-based composites are dependent upon the properties of the wood components (e.g., wood fibers, wood strands) and the manner in which they are combined. The relationship between fiber mechanical properties and fiber-based composites has been discussed in several publications. This paper will focus primarily on the influence of fiber physical and mechanical properties on the structural performance of medium-density fiberboard.
