A comparison of geometry effect on tensile testing of wood strands 

Kohan, Neil; Via, Brian; Taylor, Steve (2013-04-05)
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 ...

Prediction of strand feedstock mechanical properties with near infrared spectroscopy. 

Kohan, Neil; Via, Brian; Taylor, Steve (2013-04-04)
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 ...
