A Note on the Flexural Properties of Bark Board

Lester E. Rishel, Paul R. Blankenhorn, Wayne K. Murphey


Bending properties of particleboards made from soft maple, red oak, white oak, black cherry, beech, and yellow-poplar bark were obtained and compared with the specimen's density and thickness. Regression analyses indicated that the bending properties depend not only on species but also on density and/or specimen thickness. This dependence was not consistent among species.
