Research Status
In Progress
Project contacts are Xinfeng Xie at Michigan Technological University, and Xiping Wang at the Forest Products Laboratory
Two major outcomes are expected. First is the establishment of a technical basis for developing allowable bending strength and stiffness of hardwood CLT panels. Second is the development of models for predicting the mechanical properties of CLT products made of low-grade hardwood lumber.
