Technical Specification





Language in which you want to receive the document.


This Technical Specification specifies small-scale test methods for estimating the following mechanical properties of wood-based panels:
- indicative planar shear strength (sometimes referred to as block shear);
- indicative panel shear strength;
- indicative strength and modulus of elasticity in tension in the plane of the panel;
- indicative strength in compression in the plane of the panel.
Reference should be made to EN 310 for bending properties. For plywood, EN 314 1 may also be used as an indicator of planar shear strength.
These test methods are intended for indicative purposes only and should not be used as a means of determining structural design values. They may not be suitable for all panel types. They may be used as a means of supporting quality control procedures for structural panels, if correlations with EN 789 test results can be established (CEN Technical Report in preparation).
