DescriptionThis research compared two methods of producing flakeboards with uniform density distribution (which could then be used to predict bending properties of flakeboards with density gradients). One of the methods was suspected of producing weak boards because it involved exertion of high pressures on cold mats. Although differences were found in mechanical properties of boards produced by the two methods the differences were not great. This suggests that exertion of high pressures on cold mats does not cause great reduction in board properties. Unfortunately, the equipment used to produce boards resulted in inclusion of an extraneous variable. Hence the study data cannot prove that exertion of high pressure is inconsequential.
