White Oak wood is a popular hardwood known for its durability, strength, and beautiful grain patterns. It is widely used in various applications, including furniture, flooring, cabinetry, and barrel making. Here are the specifications for White Oak wood:
Species: Quercus alba
Other Names: American White Oak
White Oak Origin: Native to North America (United States and Canada).
Appearance: White Oak wood has a light to medium brown color, often with a golden or grayish hue. It features a straight grain pattern with a coarse texture, giving it a distinctive and attractive look.
Tree Size: White Oak trees can reach heights of 80-100 feet (24-30 meters) with a trunk diameter ranging from 3-4 feet (0.9-1.2 meters).
Average Dried Weight: The average dried weight of White Oak wood is around 45-50 lbs/ft3 (720-800 kg/m3), indicating a medium density.
Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): 0.63-0.75
Janka Hardness: White Oak wood has a Janka hardness rating of approximately 1,350-1,360 lbf (6,010-6,050 N), demonstrating its high resistance to wear and durability.
Modulus of Rupture: The modulus of rupture for White Oak wood is approximately 14,500-15,200 lbf/in2 (99.9-104.8 MPa), indicating its excellent strength and ability to withstand bending forces.
Elastic Modulus: The elastic modulus of White Oak wood is around 1,700,000-1,800,000 lbf/in2 (11.72-12.41 GPa), highlighting its stiffness and resistance to deformation.
Crushing Strength: White Oak wood exhibits a crushing strength of approximately 7,000-8,000 lbf/in2 (48.3-55.2 MPa), making it highly resistant to compressive forces.
Shrinkage: White Oak wood has a relatively low shrinkage rate, with radial shrinkage averaging around 3-5% and tangential shrinkage around 6-8%.
Drying: White Oak wood dries relatively well with minimal warping or checking issues. Proper drying techniques should still be employed to maintain its dimensional stability.
