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

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

Wood and Fiber Science 19(4): 381-387

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.
