Modeling and comparing vertical density profiles
Wood and Fiber Science
The vertical density profile of pressed wood panels is influenced by the manufacturing process and is important to panel end-users. Modeling the vertical density profile and making statistical comparisons among profiles resulting from different manufacturing treatments are critical to understanding and improving panel properties. Nonparametric regression analysis was used to model the vertical density profile of aspen oriented strand board panels. A methodology is presented to compare vertical density profile curves. Twenty-seven laboratory panels were manufactured at 608 kg/m incorporating three levels of furnish moisture content and three levels of press closure rate in a replicated, experimental design.
