timber parallel and perpendicular to the grain

Parallel compression to grain and stiffness of cross ...

Standard panels (without bamboo reinforcement) were divided into two samples with 12 specimens by panel, where these specimens of the first sample (Fig. 1a) had two lamellas in the longitudinal direction, i.e., predominance of compression parallel to grain in two lamellas and perpendicular to grain in a lamella.

High temperatures in parallel or perpendicular wood grain ...

conductivity of wood along the grain is between 1.5 to 2.8 times the conductivity across the grain. In this work, a value equal to 1.5 of perpendicular or transverse

Conventional compressive strength parallel to the grain and ...

mechanical properties parallel to the grain; the other methods load the timber perpendicular to the grain. The simplest resistance method used in our tests

Why is wood so much stronger parallel to the grain than ...

As a result, most wood properties for structural applications are given only for directions parallel to grain (longitudinal) and perpendicular to grain (radial and tangential). End grain (directions parallel to grain) is the grain of wood seen when it is cut across the growth rings.

Compression failure of a timber block parallel to the grain ...

The strength properties of timber The influence of grain orientation on sample strength The specimen is placed between steel plattens which are then pushed together subjecting the block to a compression force.

Compression perpendicular to grain in timber - DiVA portal

I Abstract Timber is widely used in the construction industry, because of its availability and good properties. The compressive strength perpendicular to grain (bearing strength) is one property

Pull out strength for different size of dowel and grain ...

This paper presents an experimental program for testing glued-in dowel glulam timber joints. Hundred thirty glulam specimens, each with a single glued-in rebar parallel to the grain and perpendicular to grain with different size of dowels 12mm, 16mm and 20mm were tested to evaluate the effects of anchorage length and different dowel diameter for parallel and perpendicular to the grain on pull ...

Connection Design - Load Perpendicular Fastened to Top of ...

Think of these dowel type fastener bearing stresses/situations like we think of studs and sill plates and of compression parallel to the grain (higher value) vs. compression perpendicular to the grain (lower value) and crushing.

Structural design for compression strength perpendicular to ...

In design of timber structures the compressive strength perpendicular to the grain is important. Currently, there is no reliable model that accounts for beam size and load situations while the standardized test methods according to ASTM, ISO and CEN lead to very different strength values.
