The aim of the present investigation was to assess the behaviour of strip-planked parts by comparing wooden specimens glued using two different bio-based adhesives with wooden specimens glued using a conventional epoxy resin generally used in boatbuilding. Experimental tests in accordance with UNI EN standards were performed in order to evaluate mechanical properties such as tensile strength, shear strength, elastic modulus and shear modulus. In addition, compression shear tests were performed in order to assess the shear modulus of the adhesives. The obtained results demonstrate that the mechanical properties of the investigated bio-based adhesives are comparable to, and sometimes better than, the conventional epoxy resin. Moreover, the experimental results give useful information for the design of wooden boats when the strip-planking process is used. Furthermore, a new procedure to assess the shear modulus of elasticity and shear strength, using the application of compression loadings, was proposed. The results were compared to standard lap-joint tests and showed even lower dispersion. Consequently, the testing procedure proposed by the authors is valid to assess shear properties under compression loading, and it can be applied in most laboratories since it involves the use of common testing devices.

Abstract

The aim of the present investigation was to assess the behaviour of strip-planked parts by comparing wooden specimens glued using two different bio-based adhesives with wooden specimens glued using a conventional epoxy resin generally used in boatbuilding. Experimental tests in accordance with UNI EN standards were performed in order to evaluate mechanical properties such as tensile strength, shear strength, elastic modulus and shear modulus. In addition, compression shear tests were performed in order to assess the shear modulus of the adhesives. The obtained results demonstrate that the mechanical properties of the investigated bio-based adhesives are comparable to, and sometimes better than, the conventional epoxy resin. Moreover, the experimental results give useful information for the design of wooden boats when the strip-planking process is used. Furthermore, a new procedure to assess the shear modulus of elasticity and shear strength, using the application of compression loadings, was proposed. The results were compared to standard lap-joint tests and showed even lower dispersion. Consequently, the testing procedure proposed by the authors is valid to assess shear properties under compression loading, and it can be applied in most laboratories since it involves the use of common testing devices.
