Fiber Hardboard is a composite material made by breaking down wood into fibers and then forming hard panels from these fibers. Presently, the most commonly used tests to assess the structural functional integrity of the hardboard are the boil swell and the cyclic soak tests. In these tests a percent caliper swell is introduced and calculated by subtracting the board's initial thickness from the board's final thickness (after the test is completed) and then dividing the result by the initial thickness. This study is an attempt to assess the functional structural integrity of fiber hardboard using acoustic emission nondestructive evaluation.
