Abstract

In this paper, part of an ongoing comprehensive research effort to develop wood-plastic composite lumber for use as an alternative to preservative-treated wood in fender systems is described. The overall objectives were to evaluate material and structural demands on members composed of the new material, to establish appropriate design criteria, and to verify component performance. Procedures for structural modeling, for component testing, and the resulting formulation of design equations are presented.
