Abstract [en]

Strength grading of Norway spruce side boards in the wet state was investigated. For a sample of 58 boards of dimensions 25×120×3000 mm3, density and dynamic modulus of elasticity in the axial direction, MOEdyn, were determined in the wet state. The boards were then split into two parts and the procedure of determining MOEdyn was repeated both before and after the boards were dried to a target moisture content of 12 %. Tensile strength of the split boards was finally measured and its relation to MOEdyn for both split and unsplit boards determined. The investigation also included an evaluation of a so called reversed lamination effect on the stiffness caused by the splitting of boards into two parts. The results show that strength grading of split boards in the wet state could give just as good results as grading performed after drying. The coefficient of determination between MOEdyn in wet and dried states was as high as R2=0.92, and the relation between MOEdyn in the wet state and tensile strength in the dried state, st, was of the same order (R2=0.55) as the relation between MOEdyn in the dried state and st (R2=0.52). Regarding the reversed lamination effect on the stiffness of split boards, it was found to be of low order.
