This volume, prepared by Working Group 2 of COST Action E13, gives a comprehensive overview on the adhesive bonded materials produced by the wood based panels and wood working industry: particleboards, MDF, OSB, plywood and solid wood panels, structural composite lumber, glued laminate timber, composite beams, laminated floors and joinery. The report then explores the mechanical behaviour of adhesive bond lines, the stress distribution of adhesive joints and how the joint strength can be modelled. Last but not least, it evaluates the substances susceptible to be emitted by the adhesives and gives a special emphasis to the life cycle assessment of glued wood products.
