Laminated strand lumber (LSL) and laminated veneer lumber (LVL) were thermally modified as a post- Received 23 November 2015 treatment at 140°C, 150°C, 160°C, 170°C, and 180°C. The tension modulus of elasticity (MOE) of LSL was Revised 29 January 2016 not significantly impacted by the treatments, with the 180°C treatment group exhibiting the highest Accepted 6 March 2016 tension MOE (11.8 GPa). The LVL also experienced minimal impacts, with the 150°C treatment group KEYWORDS having the highest tension MOE (19.4 GPa) and the 160°C treatment group exhibiting the lowest (1 7.1 Engineered wood; modified GPa). The maximum tensile strength (MTS) of the LSL and LVL significantly decreased with increasing wood; thermally modified temperatures, with the control and 180°C treatment groups experiencing the highest and lowest MTS, wood respectively. The lowest MTS for LSL was 10.8 MPa (180°C treatment), which was 70% lower than the controls. The lowest MTS of the LVL was 24.4 MPa (also at the 180°C treatment), which was a 49% decrease compared to the controls. These results suggest that thermal-modification posttreatments minimally impact tension MOE, but can significantly reduce MTS at higher treatment temperatures. Combined with previous work improving the moisture properties and equilibrium moisture content of thermally modified LSL and LVL, it may be possible to optimize the treatment technique(s) to yield products with desirable properties.
