Current Research

Current research: primary objectives focus onphysical and mechanical properties of wood-based composites.Although all composites types are investigated, primary emphasis is placed on wood fiber-based composites such as medium density fiberboard, linerboard, paper).Research involves processing variables (e.g. refining effect, glue levels, and panel density) and component degree of juvenility).
