Modeling the Influence of Knots on Douglas-Fir Veneer Fiber Orientation
Article dans une revue avec comité de lecture
This study presents a method for predicting the local fiber orientation of veneers made from peeled Douglas-fir logs based on the knowledge of the tree branch characteristics (location, radius, insertion angle, azimuth angle, and living branch ratio). This model is based on the Rankine oval theory approach and focuses on the local deviation of the fiber orientation in the vicinity of knots. The local fiber orientation was measured online during the peeling process with an in-house-developed scanner based on the tracheid effect. Two logs from the same tree were peeled, and their ribbons were scanned. The knot locations and fiber orientation were deduced from the scanner data. The first objective was to compare the fiber orientation model with measurements to enhance and validate the model for French Douglas-fir. The second objective was to link data measurable on logs to veneer quality.
