PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN OF PROTOTYPE WOOD-PLASTIC COMPOSITE SECTIONS By KEVIN JEROME HAIAR A thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of parallel-to-extrusion strength, compression perpendicular-to-extrusion strength, beam shear strength, shear strength parallel and perpendicular to extrusion, shear strength
The results showed that both tensile strength UTS and compressive strength CS parallel to the fiber of bamboo scrimber were significantly higher than those of wood and other bamboo-based composite materials.

Ross, Supervisory Research General Engineer in bending, tension, and compression. Strength properties usually reported include modulus of rupture MOR, bending strength , compression strength parallel to surface, tension
Compressive Failure of Single Fiber Composites Cornell Univ., Dept. of Biometrics Technical Report BU-1583-M There are two types of composites: natural composites, such as wood, which are found in nature, and man-made composites composed of strong, brous of the compressive strength of ber composites.

Balsa wood is a natural cellular material with excellent stiffness-to-weight and strength-to-weight ratios as well as superior energy absorption characteristics. These properties are derived from the microstructure, which consists of long slender cells tracheids with approximately hexagonal crosssections that are arranged axially.
Figure 12 Specific compressive strength perpendicular to the grain for various wood species and thermoplastic productsNote: the means of the materials' specific flexural strengths were calculated using data from 47 coniferae wood species, 75 dicotyledon wood species, 17 experimental thermoplastic product compositions from 2 papers, and 24
Although fibre kinking limits the compressive strength of carbon-matrix composites, and has often been observed in wood, the importance of kinking in metal- matrix and ceramic-matrix composites generally is not yet clear.
A wood strength rating chart by type. Strength may be defined as the ability to resist applied stress: the greater the resistance, the stronger the material. Resistance may be measured in several ways. One is the maximum stress that the material can endure before "failure" occurs.
In comparison, White Oak is a well-known wood used in cabinetry and furniture, and has a crushing strength of 7,440 lb f /in 2 51.3 MPa , and Redwood is commonly used for decking, and has a crushing strength of 5,690 lb f /in 2 39.2 MPa .
Composite floors using conventional shallow decking Tata Steel Composite steel deck floors are one-way spanning slabs in which the compressive strength is provided by insitu concrete and the tensile strength derives from
The table below provides laboratory-derived values for several mechanical properties of wood that are associated with wood strength. Note that due to sampling inadequacies, these values may not necessarily represent average species characteristics.
PROPERTIES OF WOOD AND STRUCTURAL WOOD PRODUCTS When closely packed, these wood cells form a strong composite system that is often compared to a bundle of drinking straws Figure 3-1 . As a unit, the straws wood cells weigh very little, but if restrained from can significantly influence the performance and strength of wood used in
