Plywood – Description of bending properties for structural plywood

The standard specifies how bending properties can be described and used to identify structural plywood.  Characteristic bending properties parallel and perpendicular to the major strength axis are covered for bending capacity, bending strength, bending stiffness per unit width and bending modulus of elasticity.  How each property is expressed is also given.

This standard was withdrawn in June 2012, however, it will still be referenced in existing standards until they are revised
