EFFECTS OF CCA TREATMENT AND DRYING ON TENSILE STRENGTH OF LUMBER

It is hypothesized that an interactive reationship exists between the severity of conditions imposed during initial kiln drying and the severity of conditions during subsequent treatment with waterborne preservatives, such as chromated copper arsenate (CCA), and post-treatment redrying. This is a report from nominal 2- by 4-in southern pine lumber tested in tension parallel to grain. The results are then compared with previously reported results from matched bending specimens. The details of the study are described, and the results are discussed.
