Quality Timber Strength Grading

Reference number
Coordinator Linnéuniversitetet - Institutionen för teknik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration December 2010 - December 2011
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

Strength grading techniques for timber in use today are usually built on rather week relations between stiffness and strength and in order to improve the yield in high strength classes more accurate methods are needed. The hypothesis that is evaluated in this project concerns the possibility to develop a machine strength grading technique by which bending strength predictions are based on scanning and fracture mechanical models.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
