Initial look at opportunities for optimizing lumber volume using BOF decisions for hardwood sawing


Wood and Fiber Science 19(4): 381-387
Initial look at opportunities for optimizing lumber volume using BOF decisions for hardwood sawing
Simulated sawing of a wide distribution of study log lengths, widths and tapers was carried out using a computer model of the hardwood sawing process. Yields for 15 incremental opening face positions per log were determined and percentage increases were calculated by 2 methods. The first method followed past research procedure for softwood sawing and calculated percentage increase of max. above min. lumber yield for 15 opening face positions.
