Current Research

The primary goal of research efforts are to enhance FPL research by 1) at the planning stages of studies by defining and translating study objectives into research hypotheses and describing research approaches from a statistical point of view; 2) by formulating and conducting needed statistical research to resolve complexities and to address consequences of assumptions; 3) by addressing and/or modifying experimental plans as research progresses; and 4) by reporting research results in an understandable and technically correct way to help with the dissemination of research and technology transfer.Current collaborative research involves statistical modeling to increase the understanding of wood degradation and decomposition rates when wood is exposed in complex environments. Other efforts include software development to better characterize the supply of forest-based biomass and its potential contribution to production of bioenergy and biofuels.

Improving Accelerated Testing of Durable Wood Products

Durable wood products such as posts, poles and timbers are expected to resist decay and termite attack for several decades. Testing the durability of new types of wood products is challenging because it is impractical to conduct tests for more than a ...

GraphicThe Updated Billion-Ton Resource Assessment:

A resource assessment published in 2005, commonly referred to as the Billion-Ton Study (BTS), estimated “potential” biomass within the contiguous United States based on numerous assumptions about current and future inventory, production capacity, and technology; the main conclusion of the study ...

From left to right are examples of different treated wood: micronized copper quaternary (MCQ), didecyldimethylammonium carbonate (DDAC), and alkaline copper quaternary (ACQ-D). Cupric ions from the wood preservative causes the dark coloration of the wood. Excess copper has deposited on the MCQ (green splotches) and the ACQ (along the end grain).Documenting the Durability and Service Life of Pressure-treated Wood

Preservative treatments can greatly extend the useful life of wood products. Estimates of expected service life are commonly used to compare long-term life-cycle costs for a variety of building materials. Quantifying the expected increase in service-life for treated wood is a challenge few have unde...
