Wood-based Composites and Panel Products
This online engineering PDH course is intended to provide an understanding of the different types of wood-based composites and panel products and the different processing considerations for these products.
Wood properties vary greatly among species, between trees of the same species, and between pieces from the same tree. Because of this variation, solid wood cannot match reconstituted wood in the range of properties that can be controlled in processing.
This 3 PDH online course is applicable to structural engineers, design and construction professionals, and other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of wood-based composites and product panels.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding adhesive considerations
- Understanding plywood processing and manufacturing considerations
- Learning about particle and fiber composites
- Learning about wood-nonwood composites
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 10, Wood-based Composites and Panel Products of the General Technical Report FPL-GTR-113, "Wood Handbook - Wood as an Engineering Material" published by the Forest Products Laboratory, USDA Forest Service (issued March 1999).
