BRE - Machine grading British-grown Corsican pine

Organization: BRE
Publication Date: 1 January 1981

The Code of practice for the structural use of timber, CP 112:Part 2, does not include stress values for British-grown Corsican pine (Pinus nigra). Because of an urgent requirement to machine grade this species it was decided to publish this Information Paper recommending machine grade stresses to enable BSI to issue settings to grading machine operators, and to enable designers to consider this species for structural use.
