    Description

    The mechanical properties of wood-based composites are dependent upon the properties of the wood components (e.g., wood fibers, wood strands) and the manner in which they are combined. The relationship between fiber mechanical properties and fiber-based composites has been discussed in several publications. This paper will focus primarily on the influence of fiber physical and mechanical properties on the structural performance of medium-density fiberboard.
