MOMENT CAPACITY OF FURNITURE CORNER JOINTS MADE FROM BAMBOO-ORIENTED STRAND BOARD
Keywords:Bamboo-oriented strand board, particleboard, joint technique, joint strength
As an alternative to wood, bamboo-oriented strand board (BOSB) demonstrates immense potential for applications in architecture and furniture. In this study, the corner joint performance of its L-type components under different failure modes and joint techniques was analyzed to evaluate the safety and stability of BOSB as structural materials. Results revealed that the component using wooden dowel pins exhibits the highest bending moment capacity, and the joint strength of BOSB is1.5 times greater than that of particleboard (PB), indicating that the BOSB performance meets product applications. Furthermore, the corner joint of the component in the compression failure mode was more likely to fail in comparison with the tensile failure mode, and the ultimate bending moment capacities for BOSB and PB in the tensile mode were 1.5 and 1.7 times those in the compression mode, respectively. Experimental results are thought to contribute to the understanding of a more reasonable structural design.
