Abstract
The highlights of a co-operative research program developed by the U.S. Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) and Forintek Canada Corp. to provide detailed creep-rupture and some creep information for composite panel products are summarized here. Support for this program has been provided by the American Plywood Association, The Waferboard Association (now the Structural Board Association), as well as the U.S. and Canadian Forest Services. Commercially produced plywood, oriented strandboard (OSB), and waferboard were tested to identify three mills that produced panels with high, low and median flexural creep performance. These three plywood, three OSB, and three waferboard products were then extensively tested to provide information on their duration of load and creep performance.
