Published: 23 March 2015

A Challenging alternative to Conventional wood gluing

Research areas

1.Influences of welding parameters on the mechanical resistance and water resistance of welded connection.
2.The effect of moisture content (MC) of wood on the mechanical resistance and water resistance of welded connection.
3.Thermo-chemical reaction during welding.
4.Different surface shapes and joint type.
5.Developing the current prototype equipment to industrial application.
6.Evaluation of process times, conditioning and surface treatment.
7.Development of appropriate techniques for drying of welded timber.
8.Optimization of welded wood’s service life using environmentally friendly waterproofed materials.
9.VOC emissions at different manufacturing stages and service life of welded wood.
10.Welding of unexploited regional softwoods and hardwoods.
