The new generation of OSL products, and the closely related laminated strand lumber (LSL), which uses longer strands (minimum slenderness ratio of 150; ASTM 2008a), use pressing procedures such as steam injection, preheating, or radio frequency to create a homogenous density profile more suited to framing members.
Wang and Lamb (1999) established quadratic models for the relationships among strand slenderness ratio (ratio of length to thickness), strand orientation, panel density, and other panel material properties.
The mean slenderness ratio (length/thickness) was 104 and the mean aspect ratio (width/thickness) was 16 (n = 100).
Comparisons of the CBL values were based upon the percentage difference and the numerical differences between the measured and predicted CBLs for each respective material and slenderness ratio.
