Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) with or without additive are studied by using full-field . Four-point bending tests are analyzed thanks to the spatial standard deviation of the longitudinal strain field to determine the . static MOE determined by four-point bending test of commercial WPC and found that the stress wave NDE.
The manufactured panels were all one-half inch thick and were cut to the required ASTM testing dimensions. Ten different tests were performed in order to quantify the engineering properties of the wood-plastic composite material. All tests followed the ASTM D 1037-9 1 Standard intended for evaluating wood-based panels.
