wood plastic composite (wpc) materials are being developed for load-bearing structural applications; therefore the strain rate-dependent mechanical properties of wpc materials need to be characterized. extruded wpc z-section sheet piles composed of 46 percent wood flour 41 percent polypropylene and additives were investigated. astm d6109 was adopted or assessing flexural properties of

extrusion of wood plastic composites douglas j. gardner university of maine advanced engineered wood composites center orono maine 04469 along with the extruder the die is an important part of the wpc lumber extrusion system. the die dictates the dimensions and profile (shape) of the extruded part.
to address these degradation issues wood plastic composite (wpc) materials can be used in marine sheet pile applications. wpc materials are both lightweight and durable. this research focuses on developing a sheet pile design that utilizes the material benefits of extruded wood plastic composites with a voided z section sheet pile geometry.
