Prediction of strand feedstock mechanical properties with near infrared spectroscopy.
Wood strands either prepared in the laboratory or from a manufacturing plant were assessed for their ultimate tensile strength, tensile MOE, bending strength, and bending stiffness, and then near infrared spectroscopy was ...
A comparison of geometry effect on tensile testing of wood strands
There is currently no ASTM standard for testing the tensile mechanical properties of strands used in wood-strand–based composites. In this study we compared the ultimate tensile strength (UTS) parallel to grain and tensile ...
Modeling for proximate analysis and heating value of torrefied biomass with vibration spectroscopy
The goal of this study was to characterize the changes in biomass with torrefaction for near infrared reflectance (NIR) and attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy for sweetgum, ...
