Timber structures - Structural timber and glued laminated timber - Determination of some physical and mechanical properties
|Publication Date:||1 July 1996|
|ICS Code (Timber structures):||91.080.20|
This standard specifies test methods for determining the following properties of structural timber and glued laminated timber: modulus of elasticity in bending; shear modulus; bending strength; modulus of elasticity in tension parellel to the grain; tension strength parallel to the grain; modulus of elasticity in compression parellel to the grain; compression strength parallel to the grain. In addition, the determination of dimensions, moisture content, and density are specifies. The methods apply to rectangular and circular shapes (of substantially constant cross section) of solid unjointed timber or finger-jointed timber and glued laminated timber. Is not intended for quality-control test purposes.
