Keywords:Oriented strand board, In-plane Poisson's ratio, Dynamic testing, Cantilever plate, Mid-span patch method
A cantilever plate span-to-span patch method was proposed and demonstrated for dynamic testing of OSB Poisson's ratio with high testing accuracy, simplicity, ease of implementation, and effectiveness. It is based on the patch method with zero transverse stress equal to the cantilever plate. Its effectiveness was verified by the four-point bending method and the patch strain gauge method with zero transverse stress. The simulation and theoretical analysis showed that the relative errors of OSB longitudinal and transverse Poisson's ratios dynamically tested by the span-in patch method and the patch method with zero transverse stress were within ±3.8%. The OSB longitudinal and transverse Poisson's ratios dynamically tested by the span-in patch method were in good agreement with those tested by the four-point bending method. Thus, the method is applicable to the cantilever plates with l/b= 5 to 6, b/h = 4 to 10, and l/b = 4, b/h = 7 to 10 for cantilevered plates, etc.
