Implications in the design of a method for visual grading and mechanical testing of hardwood structural timber for assignation within the European strength classes
(Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (INIA), 2011)
The European strength class system (EN 338:2009) is based on a testing standard (EN 408:2004) that is not easy to use with hardwoods, although some of this type of timber, such as European oak (Quercus robur L.), is ...
Prediction of bending strength in oak beams on the basis of elasticity, density, and wood defects
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2012)
The purpose of the study was to propose accurate models for predicting bending strength that are valid for a wide range of beam qualities. For the study, 26 European oaks (Quercus robur L.) were felled in northwestern ...
Analysis of the stress state at the double-step joint in heavy timber structures
(Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), 2019)
The double-step joint is among the most frequently used layouts, within carpentry joints, for transmitting higher forces that would allow a single notch. They are especially effective in heavy timber structures. Nowadays, ...
Mechanical Properties of Small Clear Specimens of Eucalyptus globulus Labill
Eucalyptus globulus Labill stands out as one of the hardwood species produced in Europe with prominent mechanical properties, which is undergoing a growing interest in extending added value. The development of engineered ...
