Adverse effects of heartwood on the mechanical properties of wood-wool cement boards manufactured from radiata pine wood
Wood-wool cement boards (WWCBs) that are manufactured commercially in Australia from radiata pine occasionally contain localized areas in which there is poor bonding between wood and cement. The cause of this defect, which leads to the rejection of boards before they are sold, is not known, but it has been suggested that it may be due to the use of blue-stained wood or heartwood in the manufacture of boards. In this study, both wood types were tested for their effects on the hydration of...[Show more]
