Review of Standard Test Procedures for Assessing the Delamination Resistance of Solid Wood BondlinesCompleted

Project leaders: Lum, Conroy
 

Objective:

Develop a better understanding of the effectiveness of tests typically specified for evaluating the delamination resistance and durability of solid wood bondlines during product qualification and quality control. This research will:

  • Improve the relevance and responsiveness of the procedures for evaluating delamination resistance in the fingerjoined lumber standards;
  • Review of the delamination and durability test protocols currently in use; Make comparative tests using known conforming and known non-conforming products;
  • Assess the appropriateness of the various decision rules for joint delamination or durability;
  • Present recommendations will be presented that can be used to modify existing national or plant standards for glued wood products;
  • Propose (if appropriate) the information for publication as a national standard.
