Description

This report describes a study that was conducted to evaluate the static bending and compression parallel to the grain properties evident within and among material from 19 plantation-grown red pine trees, and to determine what effect position in the tree, latewood percentage, fibril angle, specific gravity and rate of growth might have on these mechanical properties. The second phase of the study was conducted concurrently with the first to determine what effect position in the tree and specific gravity might have on the characteristics of red pine Kraft pulp. A third investigation evaluated the effect of three dry kiln schedules on the visual grade characteristics and on the static bending, compression parallel to the grain, shear parallel to the grain and toughness strength properties of plantation-grown red pine.
