of structural composite lumber using torsion and shear block tests. Rakesh Gupta. . Tobias S. Siller. Shear strength of structural composite lumber (SCL) is de- termined using a small specimen, commonly known as shear block. It is similar to the current standard test specimen for solid-sawn lumber (SSL), which uses a..

Structural Composite Lumber (SCL). This 'family' of engineered wood products, designed for structural (load-bearing) use, consists of: Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) Parallel strand lumber (PSL) Laminated strand lumber (LSL) Oriented strand lumber (OSL). Structural composite lumber (SCL) is created by layering..
LVL belongs to the category of engineered wood called structural composite lumber. Other members of this category are parallel strand lumber (PSL) and laminated strand lumber (LSL). All members of this category are strong and predictable, and are thus interchangeable for..

Dowel laminated timber. Nail laminated timber. Cross nail laminated timber. Interlocking cross laminated timber
Jun 28, 2017 . Structural composite lumber (SCL) is a term used to describe a family of engineered wood products created by layering wood veneers or strands and bonding them with moisture- resistant adhesives to form structural framing members such as beams, studs, and columns. SCL members provide numerous..
The resulting product features enhanced mechanical properties and dimensional stability that offer a broader range in product width, depth and length than conventional lumber. LVL is a member of the structural composite lumber (SCL) family of engineered wood products that are commonly used in the same structural..
Sep 7, 2015 . The term structural composite lumber refers to either laminated veneer lumber, parallel strand lumber, laminated strand lumber, or oriented strand lumber. These materials are structural members bonded with an exterior adhesive. The term laminated veneer lumber refers to a composite of wood veneer..
Structural Composite Lumber or SCL is created by layering dried and graded wood veneers, strands or flakes with exterior type adhesives into blocks of material known as billets
By carefully engineering the mix of resins, the wood and other components, Huber can tailor the product to meet your product design and manufacturing needs. Recognized by the WDMA (Window and Door Manufacturers Association) as a Structural Composite Lumber (SCL), Huber's Truspec offers enhanced properties..
May 18, 2010 . This book outlines a novel methodology for simulating the nonlinear mechanical behavior of Structural Composite Lumber. The approach is based on stochastic finite element analysis and considers varying grain angle as well as mechanical properties of individual strands or veneers. The material of..
Recent innovation in the engineered wood industry has produced structural composite lumber (SCL) that achieves excellent strength, stiffness, and efficient use of wood. Product variations of SCL, such as laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and parallel strand lumber (PSL), are currently being used in transportation to produce..
Jul 31, 2015 . Veneer for plywood and fibre bundles for fibreboards such as medium density fibreboard (MDF) are described in Chapters 4 and 5, whereas this chapter is concerned with chips for chipboard and strands for oriented strand board (OSB) and structural composite lumber (SCL) also known as parallel strand..
Manufacturers of wood products are facing a challenge: the available resource is declining in size and quality while the demand for higher quality structural wood products is increasing. Structural composite lumber is a family of reconstituted lumber products that can help meet the challenge. It has extremely uniform strength..
Jul 1, 2007 . The concern for environmentally responsible building practices and the ongoing demand for better-quality structural materials have led to the increased reliance on a variety of engineered-wood products known as structural composite lumber, also referred to in the industry as SCL. These composite..

Meets or exceeds following industry standards: Current. ANSI/WDMA I.S. 1A; W.I. Section-12 and A.W.S. Grade Custom Edition II 2014. PRODUCT..
SCL Basics. Structural composite lumber (SCL), which includes laminated veneer lumber (LVL), parallel strand lumber (PSL), laminated strand lumber (LSL) and oriented strand lumber (OSL), is a family of engineered wood products created by layering dried and graded wood veneers, strands or flakes with moisture..
Structural Composite Lumber: An engineered wood product designed for structural use, SCL is manufactured from wood strands or veneers bonded with adhesives and created using a layering technique where the outcome is a block known as a billet. Similar to conventional sawn lumber and timber, SCL products are used..
