Modelling the Grain Pattern and Orientation in Radiata Pine Boards
This study developed new algorithms to simulate the grain pattern and orientation of radiata pine boards based on the geometrical and growth features of radiata pine trees. Scenario simulation is presented in the article. The established methodology offers insights for sawmills to establish feasible log breakdown strategies and maximize radiata pine timber value.
