Laminated wood-based materials in construction
Examination of the mechanical and hygric characteristics of laminated materials made from beech wood veneer in dependence on material and procedural influencing factors.
For the design of components made from laminated wood-based materials, mechanical properties are necessary which characterize the permissible stresses and strains. Until now, these have been defined for each material, as no universal relationships between the influencing parameters and the product characteristics exist. Based on studies of mechanical and hygric properties of laminated materials made from beech, we are developing a simpler procedure with the aim of widening the application of laminated wood-based materials in the construction sector.
