The Effects of Some Factors on the Impact Bending Strength of Laminated Veneer Lumber

  title={The Effects of Some Factors on the Impact Bending Strength of Laminated Veneer Lumber},
  author={Bekir Cihad Bal and İbrahim Bektaş},
In this study, the impact bending strengths and specific impact bending strengths were determined for solid wood and laminated veneer lumber (LVL) produced from eucalyptus (Eucalyptus grandis W. Hill ex Maiden), poplar (Populus x euramericana I-214), and beech (Fagus orientalis L.) woods using urea formaldehyde (UF), melamine urea formaldehyde (MUF), and phenol formaldehyde (PF) adhesives. The tests were conducted in the flatwise and edgewise directions. In addition, specific impact bending… CONTINUE READING
