Effect of Green Density Values on Pinus radiata Stiffness Estimation using a Stress-wave Technique
Use of acoustic tools for assessing stiffness of green wood in standing trees relies on the assumption of a constant value for wood density. This study examined the variability in the green density of the outerwood (outer 5 rings) of 13-year-old Pinus radiata D.Don trees and determined the error introduced by using a constant value. Assuming a constant green density introduced a small (~3%) error in the calculated modulus of elasticity (i.e. density 'as measured' x acoustic velocity2). Acoustic...[Show more]
