Title: Predicting Plywood Properties with Wood-based Composite Models

Author: Senalik, Christopher Adam; Ross, Robert J.;

Date: 2015

Source: In: USDA Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory, General Technical Report, FPL-GTR-239, 2015 Proceedings: 19th International Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation of Wood Symposium. 7 p.

Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: Previous research revealed that stress wave nondestructive testing techniques could be used to evaluate the tensile and flexural properties of wood-based composite materials. Regression models were developed that related stress wave transmission characteristics (velocity and attenuation) to modulus of elasticity and strength. The developed regression models accounted for over 94% of these materials’ observed elastic properties and for over 90% of their observed strength. The original models were developed using wood-based particle composite specimens. The study presented in this paper investigated use of the developed statistical model to predict the modulus of elasticity and strength of veneer laminated materials, specifically plywood.
