Abstract:

A good nondestructive test method will enhance the quality and use of particleboard as an engineering structural material. Nondestructive stress-wave tests could aid in predicting strength properties of particle board. Based on research, stress-wave equipment has been introduced in a few particleboard plants to maintain quality control. Further gains will be made in the acceptance of stresswave testing and other testing methods for particleboards as their relationships to strength become better known. Author
