Modelling the process of splitting wood and chipless cutting Pinus sylvestris L. wood in terms of designing the geometry of the tools and the driving force of the machine

The size of wood is reduced by splitting or chipless cutting whilst logging trees, limbing, or preparing wood to be a fuel, for example, or in order to improve the efficiency of wood drying processes. Low costs of wood processing are desirable in …

Strain and cracks investigations on tropical green wood slices under natural drying: experimental and numerical approaches

This work presents the experimental study of natural drying and cracking of green wood slices of two tropical species. The tests were carried out on slices of Aucoumea klaineana P. and Pterocarpus soyauxii at uncontrolled temperature and relative …

Analysis of the interaction between internal porosity and oriented strand board performance using X-ray computed tomography

The internal structure of oriented strand board (OSB) is made of a large number of voids. This results from the complexity of strand distribution within the panel and impacts panel performance greatly. In this research, X-ray microcomputer …

Investigation of the orthogonal cutting of wood-plastic composites for obtaining better stability and quality

In this paper, orthogonal cutting of wood-plastic composites (WPC) was carried out experimentally, focusing on the trend and fluctuation of cutting force and temperature with the influence of cutting parameters during the cutting process and …

Influence of check depth, redrying conditions of various ambient humidities, and the presence or absence of airflow on moisture trapping in surface checks of wood

To prevent the degradation of outdoor wood products such as wood decks, it is vital to keep them dry. Weathering induces checks on wood surfaces. Surface checks gather water and maintain a high moisture content, causing decay of the wood. Herein …

About this journal

European Journal of Wood and Wood Products reports on original research and new developments in the field of wood and wood products and their biological, chemical, physical as well as mechanical and technological properties, processes and uses. Subjects range from roundwood to wood based products, composite materials and structural applications, with related jointing techniques. Moreover, it deals with wood as a chemical raw material, source of energy as well as with inter-disciplinary aspects of environmental assessment and international markets.

European Journal of Wood and Wood Products aims at promoting international scientific communication and transfer of new technologies from research into practice.
