The Wood-Based Composites Center (WBC) is an NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center I/UCRC with two main university Sites Oregon State University and Virginia Tech. Partner Universities conduct WBC research through sub-awards; currently North Carolina State University Michigan State University Auburn University and University of Nevada/Reno.
Wood and lignocellulosic-based material components are explored in this review as functional additives and reinforcements in composites for extrusion-based additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing. The motivation for using these sustainable alternatives in 3D printing includes enhancing material properties of the resulting printed parts while providing a green alternative …
Wood-Based Composites (WBC) 208 2014 Compendium of Industry-Nominated NSF I/UCRC Technological Breakthroughs Adhesive bonds have two functions: to hold the compon ents together and to facilitate transfer of mechan-ical forces from one component to the next.
Fred Kamke is Professor and JELD-WEN Chair of Wood-based Composites Science in the Department of Wood Science and Engineering at Oregon State University. He is the Co-Director of the Wood-Based Composites Center. Dr. Kamke specializes in composite manufacture resin penetration and distribution and wood and water relationships.
Feb 01 2021 Crystalline bio-based composites exhibit discontinuous feeding and warpage of printed parts in traditional filament printing. Therefore an additive manufacturing (AM) system based on micro-screw extrusion was designed and wood flour/polyhydroxyalkanoates (WF/PHA) composites without additives were manufactured.
Successful research projects will address the use of non-traditional materials or combinations of materials to produce wood-based composites. Use of alternate technologies may establish the viability of alternate materials for improved product performance and/or lower costs.
Aug 20 2020 Based in Rochester New York they have developed an efficient scalable technology to convert biomass into specialty cellulose clean lignin and cellulosic sugars enabling a true biorefinery. They look forward to networking with the composites industry and benefitting from the WBC's outstanding fundamental research capabilities.WBC Wbc.Center

This Structural Plywood and Veneer-Based Composite Manufacture course describes the softwood plywood and veneer based industry and how this forest-based business functions to create a profitable enterprise.. Initially focusing upon the history and legacy of the industry the course then …
Today many wood-based composite materials are normal materials in our day-to-day lives. These composites are usually available in panel form and are widely used in hous-ing and furniture. Wood composites are typically made with a heat-curing adhesive that holds the wood fibers or wood-particle components together. Each type of wood-based fiber
The Wood-Based Composite Science Short Course series developed in partnership with the Oregon Wood Innovation Center and the Wood-Based Composites Centerprovides mill operators as well as career professionals with a fundamental knowledge of wood as an engineering material in the manufacturing of wood-based composites.. If you complete the …
Conventional wood-based composites are manufactured products made primarily from wood with only a few percent resin and other additives. A useful way to classify conven-tional wood-based composites based on specific gravity density material and processing methods is shown in Figure 11–3 which presents an overview of the most com-

wood-based composites. The classification in Table 11-1 reflects the latest product developments. The basic element for wood-based composites is the fiber with larger particles composed of many fibers. Elements used in the production of wood-based composites can be made in a variety of sizes and shapes. Typical elements in-

The Wood-Based Composites Center (WBC) advances the science and technology of wood-based composite materials. WBC promotes and coordinates research and education at multiple North American universities; educates and trains students for careers in the wood-based composites and adhesion industries; and provides intellectual exchange and interaction among professionals and students interested in the manufacture and performance of wood-based …
Sep 01 2020 Wood-based material components including sawdust wood flour lignin and cellulose are being explored as functional additives and reinforcements in extrusion-based additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing. This 3D printing process uses a filament or pellets which are melted and extruded into the desired shape.
