ASTM D3499 - 19

Standard Test Method for Toughness of Wood-Based Structural Panels

Status : Current   Published : March 2019



1.1 This test method for toughness of wood structural panels covers the determination of energy necessary to cause failure by impact loading of a beam specimen which is simply supported and loaded at midspan. Wood structural panels in use include plywood, oriented strand board, and composites of veneer and of wood-based layers.

1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.3  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
