Compare on the Main Physical and Mechanical Properties of Two Bamboo Particle Boards
The main physical and mechanical properties of the ordinary and bamboo mat enhancing bamboo particle board (for short EBPB) were detected and analysed through the Resistance Strain Monitor and wood mechnical test machine. The results proved that the tensile and bend deformation of two kinds of bamboo partical board(for short BPB) increased nonlinearly with the load increasing. The greatest tensile and bend load increased respectively 66% and 56%, and in the tensile and bend deformations, decreased respectively 21% and 20% EBPB than the ordimary bamboo particle board(for short OBPB). The main physical and mechnical properties of the EBPB exceeded markedly OBPB, which showed the bamboo mat could increased evidently the physical and mechnical properties of BPB.
