Aspects on the forest resource wood and the conversion process to building materials
University of Natural Resources and Life Science – BOKU (Austria)
The material wood is derived from forest sources such as semi-natural mixed forests, even-aged monocropping forest stands and plantagon forestry comprising a wide range of different wood species. This variety in raw material sources concerning wood species and raw material properties combined with natural hazards, logging and harvesting characteristics of the forest owners are big challenges on roundwood allocation and the conversion process of the raw material into a homogeneous and reliable building material.
The mini-symposium covers some specific aspects of this forestry-wood conversion chain with a strong focus on multi-functional forestry, hardwood resources and new approaches in the mechanical raw material conversion technology. A heterogeneous raw material source shall be converted into a homogeneous and reliable building material with tailored and engineered material properties in the best possible way.
