civil engineering. Wood Engineering Properties #2. Civil Engineering Design and Engineering. Strength and engineering properties of some commercially important . Universally recognized for its superior strength to weight ratio, Douglas Fir is often the wood of choice specified by architects and engineers for use as structural timber. In strength, Douglas Fir rates the highest of any western softwood for: extreme fiber stress in bending; tension parallel-to-grain; horizontal sheer; compression.

Lumber strength properties are assigned to five basic properties: fiber stress in bending (Fb), tension parallel-to-grain (Ft), horizontal shear (Fv), compression parallel-to-grain (Fc), and compression perpendicular-to-grain (Fc |). Douglas-fir is the only redwood-type material still available in substantial volumes of clear wood and is characterized by having the highest ratings of any western softwood for extreme fibre stress in bending; tension parallel-to-grain; horizontal sheer; exceptional strength, hardness and durability.

Examines current industry standards concerned with the use of wood and wood products. Features detailed studies of joists, special beams, residential trusses and arches. Contains accessible tables in order to figure out the most economical way of building a . The compressive strength perpendicular to grain (bearing strength) is one property of wood which is important for structural design. The bearing strength is important for the the wood cells are oriented parallel to the longitudinal axis of the tree. The most common type of cell in softwood is the so called tracheid; a tube-shaped cell with.

VGT 1x2 (Received 15 hlay ) ABSTRACT The strength of wood in tension pelyendicular-to-grain has been studied by severalCited by: This study investigated the tensile strength of Douglas-fir loaded at an angle to the grain.

Strength was determined for grain angles of 15, 30, 45 and 60 degrees in the radial-longitudinal plane. Strength was found to drop dramatically from a grain orientation of zero to 15 degrees. Weibull's theory of brittle fracture is applied to the determination of strength of Douglas-fir wood in tension perpendicular to the grain.

Results from tests on blocks of glued-laminated material uniformly stressed in tension are used to derive ultimate stresses, at a given survival probability. Strength Properties Common Properties Mechanical properties most commonly measured and repre-sented as “strength properties” for design include modulus of rupture in bending, maximum stress in compression parallel to grain, compressive stress perpendicular to grain, and shear strength parallel to grain.

Lumber strength properties are assigned to five basic strength properties: fiber stress in bending (Fb), tension parallel-to-grain (Ft), horizontal shear (Fv), compression perpendicular-to-grain (Fc) and compression parallel-to-grain (Fc//).

Wood is very strong in compression parallel to the grain and this is seldom a limiting factor in furniture design.

It is considerably weaker in compression perpendicular to the grain. An example of this type of compression would be the pressure that chair legs exert on a wooden floor. calculate deflection). Design values for a column would be compression parallel to the grain and modulus.

For a chord in a truss under tension, the tension design value would be needed. The next slide will illustrate the definitions of the terms “perpendicular to the grain” and “parallel to the grain”.

ity of the grain around the knot is interrupted by the sawing process. In general, knots have a greater effect on strength in tension than compression; in bending, the effect depends on whether a knot is in the tension or compression side of a beam (knots along the File Size: KB.

Douglas Fir is North America’s most plentiful softwood species, accounting for one fifth of the continent’s total softwood reserves The wood of Douglas-fir varies widely in weight and strength. When lumber of high strength is needed for structural uses, selection can be improved by applying the density rule.

In contrast to tension parallel to grain, wood is very weak in tension perpendicular to grain. Compressive stress perpendicular to grain—Reported as stress at proportional limit.
