Adhesive Through-Reinforcement Improves the Fracture Toughness of a Laminated Birch Wood Composite

He, Wenchang; Evans, Philip


In this paper we test the hypothesis that adhesive through-reinforcement in combination with glass-fibre reinforcement of adhesive bond lines will significantly improve the fracture toughness of a laminated birch wood composite. We test this hypothesis using a model composite consisting of perforated veneer that allowed a polyurethane adhesive to penetrate and reinforce veneers within the composite. Model composite specimens were tested for mode I fracture properties, and scanning electron...[Show more]
