Numerical study of FRP reinforced timber members subjected to variable climates
(SHATiS International Conference on Structural Health Assessment of Timber Structures, 2019-09-25)
The use of FRP reinforcement, even in small percentages, has been shown to improve the short-term flexural behaviour of timber members. This technology has been successfully used in new construction and in the repair and ...
Use of nondestructive techniques for determination of tension parallel-to-grain properties of spruce
(USDA Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory (FPL), 2019-09-25)
The paper presents a study of the tension properties of Irish-grown Sitka spruce. Fifty timber pieces were destructively tested having resonant frequency and knots measured. The aim was to improve knowledge of the performance ...
