Nov. 12, 2013 – Catherine Jucha, a sophomore entering the Sustainable Biomaterials program this fall, participated in the SURF (Student Undergraduate Research Fellowship) activity this summer through the Fralin Life Science Institute. Catherine worked in the Wood Engineering laboratory investigating the mechanical properties of cross-laminated timber (CLTs), in particular the rolling shear of the cross-plies. Catherine presented a poster and talk entitled “Mechanical Properties of Cross-Laminated Timbers”. Catherine presented her results on August 3, 2012 at the Inn At Virginia Tech. Drs. Hindman and Bouldin served as mentors.
