stiffness of wood diaphragms based on the formulas currently used in cold-formed steel design. such a formula would allow an improved method of predicting diaphragm deflections. the capability to accurately calculate diaphragm stiffness and deflections will enhance the safety and economy of wood diaphragms.

chipboard manufactured from waste materials has extra carbon offset value making a contribution to a sustainable environment. oriented strand board osb is an engineered, composite, wood-based panel product, designed as a structural replacement for sheathing grades of plywood.

therefore, many composite beams with profiled sheeting are partial composite beams and the additional deflection induced by the shear slip effect at the interface should be considered . study on the capacity and deformation of composite beams with profiled sheeting considering the slip effect is of great practical significance.
there is a trend to continued market growth of plastic lumber and wood-plastic composites a type of plastic composite produced with wood particles as filler , both in north america and in europe . in 1995, approximately 50 thousand tonnes of them were consumed in both regions.
posts and timbers are a minimum of 5 inches thick, and the width does not exceed the thickness by more than 2 inches. decking is 2 to 4 inches thick and loaded in the weak axis of bending for a roof, floor, or wall surface. most wood used in light-frame residential construction takes the form of dimension lumber.
the deflection of composite slabs depends directly on the shear stiffness of the connection between profiled steel sheeting and concrete. a method for calculating deflections of slabs is presented in this paper. this method is based on a theory of built-up bars, which allows one to take into account directly the shear stiffness of the connection.
1.1 this guide covers test methods appropriate for evaluating a wide range of performance properties for wood-plastic composite wpc products. it was developed from evaluations of both experimental and currently manufactured products, and is not intended to suggest that all the tests listed are necessary or appropriate for each application of a wpc.

wooden materials covered here include timber, lumber, wood-base fibers, commercial softwoods and hardwoods, wood preservatives, laminated timber, and composite lumber to name a few. these materials are notably used in the fabrication of construction materials such as structural panels and members, construction poles, and log buildings.
wood plastic composite wpc lumber is an alternative to ppt lumber, and wpcs avoid the copper-rich chemical formulations found in ppt lumber that may potentially accelerate the corrosion of steel panels and fasteners. wpc prod-ucts have mechanical properties differ-ent from those of lumber, so testing is

properties of wood along three orientations: tangential, radial, and longitudinal. given that lumber is cut from logs in the longitudinal direction, the grain is parallel to the length of a lumber member.
testing data was used to analyze the overall deflection of the ftao wall systems, which verified that the sheathing below the openings aided in resisting the overall deflection of the wall. the wall deflection assumption is that the total deflection of the ftao shear wall is equivalent to the average of the deflection of each wall pier in both the positive and negative directions.

osb wood panels. when osb panels are created, thin wood strands are combined with adhesive and then hot-pressed into sheets. osbs strength comes from the fact that strands of wood are aligned in each layer and that each layer is perpendicular to the one below they mimic plywood in this perpendicular layering .
