Abstract

Abstract Experimental results concerning the rate of loading of orthoganally crossed layers of wooden bars subject to lateral compression by flat platens in an Instron machine, and by low velocity impact in a drop hammer, are presented. The behaviour of a two crossed bar basic unit is described, and the influence of rate of testing and moisture content of the wood on its load-compression characteristic is discussed. Based on experimental results for three common woods, kail, deodar and teak, an attempt is made to develop a relationship between the response of a two crossed bar system and that of multi-layer crossed bar systems.
