    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1These test methods cover the evaluation of lumber and wood-based products in structural sizes by various testing procedures.

    1.2The test methods appear in the following order:

    Sections

    Flexure

      4 – 11

    Compression (Short Specimen)

    13 – 20

    Compression (Long Specimen)

    21 – 28

    Tension

    29 – 36

    Torsion

    37 – 44

    Shear Modulus

    45 – 52

    1.3Notations and symbols relating to the various testing procedures are given in Appendix X1.

    1.4The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.5This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
