Title: On the measurement of fiber orientation in fiberboard
Author: Suchsland, Otto; McMillin, Charles W.;
Source: Forest Products Journal 33(10):39-42
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: An attempt to measure the vertical component of fiber orientation in fiberboard is described. The experiment is based on the obvious reduction of the furnish fiber length which occurs by cutting thin microtome sections of the board parallel to the board plane. Only when no vertical fiber orientation component is present will the fibers contained in these sections have the same average length as the fibers in the board at large. Increasing deviation of fiber alignment from the board plane will result in shorter fiber lengths in the microtome sections.
