Aspen (Populus tremuloides) is emerging as an important species for laminated veneer lumber (LVL) products in North America. During LVL manufacturing, both veneer stress grades and hot-pressing schedules are vital to product performance. In this study, an experimental design with four three-level variables comprising veneer moisture content (MC), veneer stress grade, platen pressure, and glue spread level was employed to investigate their effects on pressing behavior and stiffness and strength… CONTINUE READING
