    Abstract: The results show that the variation in the swelling rate of some samples analysed describes a sinusoid with values higher than those recommended by the AINSI A 208.1 1999 standard. The use of these panels in a dry environment is therefore strongly recommended. The Young's modulus of elasticity (YME) and the breaking Modulus of Rupture (MOR) of the ... Show More
