Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering . This paper describes the structural performance of an innovative wood plastic composite (WPC) sheet piling. Tensile coupon . However, if the modulus is computed over the same stress range of 1040% of the WPC ultimate tensile strength, both materials have a similar modulus

Wood-plastic composite (WPC) is a non-recyclable composite material lumber or timber made of recycled plastic and wood wastes which has become one of the most dynamic sectors of the plastics . The way morphology affects or controls the physical and mechanical behaviours of the finished materials is discussed
Wood and ash content. Wood content of the WPC board was analyzed by dissolving about a 1 g sample of the oven-dried composite in decahydronaphthalene and calculating the weight of recovered wood particles. Additionally, about 1 g of WPC sample was ashed at both 675°C and..
