Summary
This article presents a test method that was developed to screen adhesive formulations for finger-jointed lumber. The goal was to develop a small-scale test that could be used to predict whether an adhesive would pass a full-scale ASTM E119 wall assembly test. The method involved loading a 38-mm square finger-jointed sample in a four-point bending test inside of an oven with a target sample temperature of 204°C. The deformation (creep) was examined as a function of time. It was found that samples fingerjointed with melamine formaldehyde and phenol resorcinol formaldehyde adhesives had the same creep behavior as solid wood. One-component polyurethane and polyvinyl acetate adhesives could not maintain the load at the target temperature measured middepth of the sample, and several different types of creep behavior were observed before failure. This method showed that the creep performance of the onecomponent adhesives may be quite different than the performance from short-term load deformation curves collected at high temperatures. The importance of creep performance of adhesives in the fire resistance of engineered wood is discussed.

Summary
Massive timber panels (MTPs) has shown a great potential in construction of tall buildings. Evaluation of the face-bond strength of MTPs is of an interest to use of this kind of products. This study was aimed at developing an appropriate test procedure for evaluating the adhesive bond strength of cross-laminated laminated strand lumber (LSL). Short span bending tests were conducted on two-layer asymmetric cross-laminated LSL specimens, which were adhesively bonded using two-component polyurethane (PUR) and polyvinyl acetate (PVAc). For comparison, block shear specimens were tested as well. It was found that the 2-layer asymmetric cross-laminated specimen assembly under the short span bending could be used to differentiate between good and poor bond quality.
